The File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) Protocol is a set of DCOM interfaces for managing the configuration of directory quotas, file screens, classification properties, classification rules, file management jobs, report jobs, classifier modules, and storage modules on a machine. The File Server Resource Manager Protocol deals with operating system, file system, and storage concepts. Although the basic concepts are outlined in this specification, the specification assumes that the reader has familiarity with these technologies. For background information about storage, disk, and volume concepts, see [MSDN-STC], [MSDN-DISKMAN], and [MSDN-PARTITIONINFO].
This protocol is used to programmatically enumerate and configure directory quotas, file screens, report jobs, classifier modules, and storage modules on local and remote machines.<1>
Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
