File Storage Analysis Discovery: Configure NAS Host Devices

If you have NAS host devices that contain targets to be collected, you must enable the collection option and add the configuration and credentials for each host device. You can optionally omit NAS host device configuration and collect shares as volumes for NAS device targets in the discovery. Use this option when volumes cannot be retrieved or do not need to be collected.
