Issue/Introduction

By default, Network Discover does not scan files that do not have a file extension in the file name.

Resolution

To work around this issue, add a wildcard to the DirectoryFileMatch parameter in the VontuFileSystemScanner.cfg file:

  1. Open the SymantecDLP/Protect/config/VontuFileSystemScanner.cfg file in a text editor.

  2. Add this line:
    DirectoryFileMatch=*

  3. Save and close the file.

  4. Restart the Vontu Manager service to apply your configuration changes.
