It may be a strange question but can I preposition hidden shares on a WAAS device? I have tried manually entering in the share name in the "root share and directories" part of a preposition directive in the format /sharename$/
It seems that the preposition copies the files into the WAE's CIFS cache, but once I do that I can't access the files in the hidden share anymore.
My other question is once I preposition some files to my WAE is there a way that I can selectively delete items from the CIFS cache (I am thinking of deleting the files in that particular share if possible as a troubleshooting step).
Yes, WAAS will pre-position hidden shares. Can you please elaborate on not being able to access the share after pre-position?
To your second question, there is currently no way to delete specific files from the CIFS object cache (other than deleting the file on the origin file server (from a session through the WAFS Edge).
