Hello fellow Thwack Heads.
I am hoping someone could help me here. I have been tasked with seeing if there is a way to monitor if a directory folder is accessible or not.
I have looked over Thwack for suggestions and have found some but nothing that is clean and will give me what I actually need. I am hoping someone has an idea or a way of accomplishing what I'm looking to do.
We basically own all SW products with the exception of LEM but I do not think an event log is created when a directory becomes inaccessible but maybe I'm wrong on that.
To clarify what I'm trying to do; I want to monitor with hopefully S.A.M or another SW product if a specific folder that an application resides in and that Citrix pulls the application from is accessible or not. I have already set-up monitors for if the services and processes are running or not but they would also like to see if a folder is able to be accessed or not. T:\APPS\RAIVLiq\rightangle.exe
I would than also do this for other directories as well;
Any thoughts or idea's on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.
I would give this thread a look. If something is available that's one thing, but if it's accessible that can be a different story. A lot of the issue you may come to is whether the path is available to the system or not as is discussed in the below post, if it's a mapped drive it's only available to the user and not the system for monitoring:
