Correct Share Settings for Adding a Server in Varonis

When adding servers to Varonis, under the Shares tab select the highest level shares that Varonis has access to.  In addition, there is an option to Automatically detect shares.  This should be set to “Detect and Notify” and the “Notify” option should be set to once.  That way, whenever a share is added to a server an email will go out indicating that fact.  At that point, if it is a new volume or new top-level share, you can go back into the Management Console and add that volume.  Do not automatically monitor shares, as this may pick up devices such as CD drives or shares that should not be monitored, such as backup shares.
