Local Data Stores


Please Note:

Local Data Stores

Local Data Stores, i.e. local storage and local memory are standard scan locations. DDC supports Windows and Linux as local storage data stores.

You cannot scan a mounted network share as local storage. Local data stores need an agent installed on the same host.

Adding Local Data Stores

To add a local data store use the Add Data Store wizard to add a local data store.

1. Select Store Type

  1. In the Select Store Type screen of the wizard select Local Storage in Select Data Store Category.

    In the Select Type drop-down list, you will see Local Storage already selected.

    When you select a category under Select Data Store Category, Select Type will list only data stores that belong to the selected category. The Local Storage category has only one type, regardless if you are adding a Windows or Linux data store.

  2. Click Next to go on to the Configure Connection screen.

2. Configure Connection

  1. The Configure Connection screen is displayed.

  2. In the Hostname/IP field specify a valid hostname, IP address, or Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the agent running on the machine where the local data store resides. For example: or agent123. The hostname must be longer than two characters.

    Make sure that the agent can resolve its own hostname. If it cannot, add it to its hosts file. For example, if its hostname is 'agent123', add this line: localhost agent123

    When creating a scan for a local storage type data store, make sure that the target path syntax format matches the local store type. For example, for Windows it could be C:\path\to\folder\file.txt, and for Linux /home/username/file.txt.

  3. Click Next to go to the General Info screen.

3. General Info

  1. Configure the General Info part per the information in General Info.

  2. Click Next to go to the Add Tags & Access Control screen.

4. Add Tags & Access Control

  1. Configure the Tags & Access Control par per the information in Tags & Access Control.

  2. Click Save. The newly created data store appears on the Data Stores page. By default, data stores are displayed in alphabetic order by name. Depending on the number of entries per page, you might need to navigate to other pages to view the newly created data store.
