  • Windows 2003 and mount points...disk space

    Now that we've moved to Win2K3, we are utilizing the new feature of mount points; however, Hyena currently does not seem to recognize these as disks and will not report Disk Space for these drives.

    Are there any plans in the future to support this?

    At this time we have no plans of supporting this. You may want to see if there is a WMI class that can be used to get this information. V6.0 of Hyena will be releasing soon and it has WMI reporting capabilities.

        Hyena would be more useful if the "Disk Space" folder showed the space on all drives.

        Suppose you have a server set up with an "R:" volume (5 GB) with additional volumes mounted as "R:\MB1Logs" (20 GB) and "R:\MB1DB" (80 GB). This is becoming common practice for clustered Exchange servers on Windows Server 2003. The Disk Space listing only shows an R: drive with 5 GB and you miss seeing the volumes where you should be worried about running out of space.

        The following script will list the space from WMI. Is there any way that something similar can be used for disk space under the server object?


        Message = ""
        For each Volume in GetObject("Winmgmts:").InstancesOf ("Win32_Volume")
        FreeSpace = CDbl("0" & Volume.FreeSpace) / 1024 / 1024 / 1024
        Capacity = CDbl("0" & Volume.Capacity) / 1024 / 1024 / 1024
        If Capacity <> 0 Then
        Message = Message & Volume.Name & vbTab & volume.FileSystem & vbCrLf & _
        vbTab & vbTab & "Free space: " & vbTab & FormatNumber(FreeSpace, 2) & " GB" & vbCrLf & _
        vbTab & vbTab & "Capacity: " & vbTab & FormatNumber(Capacity, 2) & " GB" & vbCrLf
        End If
        Next
        WScript.Echo Message

          The disk space functions that Hyena uses, developed by Microsoft, are the primary reason behind this limitation.

          But Hyena now fully supports WMI, so you can easily create a query similar to this in Hyena, provided that you have the Enterprise Edition. The only thing that you can't do is show percentages and scale the value down as your script does. Hyena just shows the raw WMI data.

          Let us know if you need help in configuring a WMI query to do this.

            How do we request something like this for version 6.x or 7?

              Request what ? I don't think that mount points support remote querying of available disk space, and they don't fit in with the disk functions that we have now.
