Add FS scans

Click on "File server" to add an FS scan.


Select the desired file server. The list of computers is loaded from AD (no AD scan needed).

Select a collector for the FS scan.

You can also enter a (not listed) name into the filter / search field.


By default the ARM server basic configuration credentials will be used.

If the desired file server is not shown please check the following:

If the scan configuration is invalid you will see an error message at the start of the scan. This will also be recorded in a Logfile.


Import FS scan configurations

Click on "File server CSV import" to import a file server configuration file.

We recommend using the CSV import functionality to manage a large number of FS scan configurations and add these to ARM with just a few clicks.


The CSV file must contain, at minimum, the following columns:

  • "Server"
  • "Share" or "freigabe"

Optional columns:

  • "Collector" or "kollektor"
  • additional descriptions

Choose tab or semi-colon as a delimiter.

If the column "collector" is not created, then the collector defined in the import dialog will be used for all scan configurations.

Do not use the following descriptions as column headers: "Bemerkung", "description", "Präfix", "prefix"


Determine the import settings:

  • which collector(s) perform(s) scans (only required if not included in the CSV file)
  • at what time the scans are performed
  • how many parallel requests are performed
  • file server type
  • if previously entered scan configurations should be deleted

The settings in the import dialog are valid for all shares.
