File extension blocking is not working on filer

Currently Being Moderated



I am trying to create a native file blocking based on extension of the file system like .mp3 etc....


Here are the steps I am performing:

1) fpolicy create mp3blocker screen

2) fpolicy extensions include set mp3blocker mp3


UKXXXXXXX>fpolicy monitor set mp3blocker -p cifs,nfs create,rename


The following commands are available; for more information

type "fpolicy help <command>"

create              enable              options             show

destroy             ext[ension]         servers             vol[ume]

disable             help

Also tried the below:

fpolicy mon add mp3blocker -p cifs create,rename


Can not execute 3) but have gone ahead and enabled the policy with the below steps


4) bfpolicy options mp3blocker required on

5) fpolicy enable mp3blocker

I am still able to copy *.mp3 files

Sorry about the formatting. Any suggestions?
