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
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.
Click Next to go on to the Configure Connection screen.
2. Configure Connection
The Configure Connection screen is displayed.
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:
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:
127.0.0.1 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
Click Next to go to the General Info screen.
3. General Info
Configure the General Info part per the information in General Info.
Click Next to go to the Add Tags & Access Control screen.
4. Add Tags & Access Control
Configure the Tags & Access Control par per the information in Tags & Access Control.
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.
