Issue/Introduction

What paths need to be mentioned in path under file attributes when we select "Copy to local drive or Copy to share" under Network shares in Agent monitoring.

Cause

N/A

Environment

DLP Endpoint Server 14.6

DLP Endpoint Agent 14.6

Resolution

1] “Copy to Local Drive” monitors/ignores files copied from network shares to Windows endpoint. Hence the path to monitor or ignore becomes the network share from where the files will be copied to the Windows Endpoints (Local Drive). Here the source is what we ignore or monitor.

2] “Copy to Share” monitors/ignores files copied from Windows and Mac endpoints to network shares. Here the network share path is what we are supposed to ignore or monitor, hence we track destination here.

We monitor or ignore Network server shares in both the cases.

Please refer to DLP Admin guide for valid network path to be used under file attributes.
