Issue/Introduction

In KB 42625, there is the recommendation to set 'crawler.use.jcifs = false' on a Windows discover server.

If I do this, does this disable the Discover server's ability to access and scan CIFS files systems?

Resolution

No.  The setting only affects the use of the jcifs (Java CIFS) library.  If the library is disabled, the native CIFS access is used.
