Configure Nutanix File Server for Monitoring

To configure your Nutanix File Server for monitoring SMB shares, you will need to do the following:

  1. Create User Account to Access Nutanix REST API
  2. Open Port for Inbound Connections

Also, you should configure Netwrix Auditor Server as a partner server for Nutanix Files, and create a notification policy to make Netwrix Auditor aware of the Nutanix events. These operations can be performed in any of the following ways:

  • Automatically when creating a monitoring plan. For that, you should select the Adjust audit settings automatically option in the monitoring plan wizard. See Settings for Data Collection for more information.

  • Manually, as described in the corresponding sections:

NOTE: Remember that in both cases (automatic or manual configuration) you will need to take steps 1 and 2 above, i.e., ensure that the user account for accessing REST API is created and the listening port on Netwrix Auditor Server is open for inbound connections.
