Mapped Drive Monitoring

This check tests whether a mapped drive is connected on a remote PC. Sometimes, some critical information is stored on a mapped drive and you would like to monitor the mapped drive availability. If a critical mapped drive is unmounted on a remote server, you will be notified about this in time.

Warning! Mapped drives are mounted for each user individually. I.e. if the user1 account has the M: mapped drive, the user2 account of the same workstation will possibly not have the same M: drive mounted. To configure the mapped drive monitoring check, you need to know the correct user account which should have the necessary mapped drive connected. The check also allows you to monitor the network share path which is connected as a mapped drive.

Warning! This check operates via WMI (as the WMI check). Remote WMI execution can fail with default Windows security settings. Your system should work with the classic access model (or normal, not guest) and you need admin rights on a remote PC to gather information from it via WMI.


Requirements: Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista/7/8.1/10, Server 2003/2008/2012/2016/2019/2022 supported.
