System Requirements

File System Connector can be installed as part of a larger system that includes an IDOL Server and an interface for the information stored in IDOL Server. To maximize performance, HPE recommends that you install IDOL Server and the connector on different machines.

The connector must be installed on the machine that you want to ingest files from, or on a machine that has access to those files through standard paths.

Connector Machine

The minimum requirements for the File System Connector are:

Note: The disk space requirement depends on the amount of data that you want to ingest from the file system.

Netware File Systems

To retrieve files from a Netware file system, the connector must be installed on a machine running Windows. You must also install the Novell client on the connector machine. This allows the connector to access the Netware server.


To extract group information, you must also install OmniGroupServer.
