DataGuard on network drive

Can I use DataGuard on network share? I'm afraid that malware could encrypt files on network share.

 

How can I enter network share into policy manager? I try with  \\doman.com\share and  \\doman.com\share\ but line is red in settings in Policy Manager. We don’t map network shares as drive on workstation, we use “direct” network name (eg. \\domain.com\xxx\).

 

I have Server Security installed on server but I think that it will not prevent changes on files which are accessible from other workstations via network share. Or I’m wrong?

 

How can I test if DataGuard is working?

    Hi Dussan

     

    Files on network drives / shares can't be protected by DataGuard.

    Hi Dussan

     

    I would recommend installing Server Security on your network shares

    Hell James,

     

    I wrote in first message  "I have Server Security installed on server but I think that it will not prevent changes on files which are accessible from other workstations via network share. Or I’m wrong?"

     

    I'm wrong?
