Leave the windows open for the next exercise. Exercise 5.3 Managing Files with File Screening Overview In this exercise, you will continue to use File Server Resource Manager by using File Screening. Mindset You have a file server that ran out of disk space. Last week, there was plenty of space and this week, there is none. While looking at the files that are stored, you noticed that a couple of users have stored movie and music collections.

Click OK to close the File Screen Properties on C:\Share4 dialog box.16. Click Create to create a new file screen.17. When you are prompted to save the custom properties as a template, click Save the custom file screen without creating a template. Click OK.18. With File Explorer, open the C:\Share4 folder.19. In File Explorer, click the View tab.20. Ensure that File name extensions is selected as shown in Figure 5-3.Figure 5-3Showing File name extensions21. On the Desktop, create a text file named test1.avi. Be sure that the file does not have the .txt filename extension. If it asks to change the filename extension, click OK. NOTE Although the file has a .avi filename extension, it is really not a video file. It is just to demonstrate file screening. 22. Copy the test1.avi file to the C:\Share4 folder. Question 3 What message did you get when you tried to copy the file? 23. Click Cancel.24. Rename the test1.avi file to hello.avi.25. Copy the hello.avi file to the C:\Share4 folder.26. Open the Event Viewer and access the Application logs. Question 4 What event ID was used for files that were not permitted for file screening? 27. Close Event Viewer28. Close the Share4 folder. End of exercise. Leave the windows open for the next exercise. Exercise 5.4 Using Storage Reports Overview In this exercise, you will execute File Server Resource Manager storage reports. Mindset To help you manage storage, you can use FSRM to generate storage reports that show the state of file server volumes and anyone who exceeds the quota or uses files that aren’t allowed. Completion time 10 minutes 1.On Server01, on File Server Resource Manager, click Storage Reports Management.2.Right-click Storage Reports Management and choose Generate Reports Now.3.When the Storage Reports Task Properties dialog box opens, in the Report data section, select Quota Usage.

Close message box, if needed, and view the Quota Usage Report.9.Take a screen shot of the Quota Usage Report window by pressing Alt+Prt Scr and then paste it into your Lab05_worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.10. Close Internet Explorer. End of exercise. Leave the windows open for the next exercise. Exercise 5.5 Configuring File Management Tasks Overview In this exercise, you will create file management tasks that will expire/migrate files in a data folder. Mindset By using the File Management Tasks node in FSRM, you can create file management tasks to handle expiring files. These tasks can automatically move all files that match specified criteria to a specified expiration directory. An administrator can then back up those files and delete them. Completion time 20 minutes 1.On Server01, using File Explorer, on the C drive, create a C:\FileData folder.2.In the FileData folder, create a Test1 file with NotePad. Type your name in the text file and then save the file.3.Using File Explorer, create a C:\Expirefolder.4.In File Server Resource Manager, click the File Management Tasks node.5.Right-click the File Management Tasks node and choose Create File Management Task. 6.When the Create File Management Task dialog box opens, on the General tab, in the Task name text box, type Cleanup Old Files.7.Click the Scope tab and then click Add.8.

Right-click the File Management task that you just created and choose Run File Management Tasks Now. When the Run File Management Tasks dialog box opens, select Wait for the task to complete (this can take hours or days) and then click OK. Within a minute, the text file should move from the C:\FileData folder to the C:\Expire folder.17. Take a screen shot of File Server Resource Manager by pressing Alt+Prt Scr and then paste it into your Lab05_worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.18. Open the C:\Expire folder and find the test1 file. 19. Close File Server Resource Manager. End of exercise. Close any open windows.Lab REview Questions Completion time 10 minutes 1.In Exercise 5.2, with File Server Resource Manager, what are quotas assigned to? 2.In Exercise 5.2, if you want to prevent a folder from getting too large, what type of quota should you use?3.In Exercise 5.2, what methods can you use for notification when a quota is exceeded?4.In Exercise 5.3, how do you prevent a user from saving unauthorized files?5.In Exercise 5.5, what allows you to get a comprehensive report on how a disk is being used by the users?
