Using a configuration file, you can provide a list of excluded files and folders which will not be included in datastore scans. The list can either be explicit, or rules-based using regular expressions.


Editing the Configuration File


Before you make a change to any configuration file, Embotics® recommends backing up the original file and/or taking a snapshot of the VM so you have a known state to which you can return. This is especially true when using regular expressions where a pattern may cause unexpected results.

  1. Login to Windows on the Embotics vCommander™ application server.
  2. Use Windows Explorer to browse to <Install Directory>\Embotics\vCommander\tomcat\common\classes.
  3. Use a text editor such as Notepad to open the file vim-datastore-scan-excludes.conf.
  4. Refer to the instructions in the file’s comments to add lines for the desired exclusions.
