Get PID from SMB request

Pavel_SPavel_S Member Posts: 80

Hi folks,

Is it possible at all to know on behalf of what particular process (PID) request made by SMB to access share has been done?
From one angle it sounds ridiculous (as it is question out PID of machineA when minifilter is on machineB) - sure that doesn't sound smart but what if we will talk about accessing loopack? In this case it would be nice to know. I think IoGetRequestorProcess will not help here as in fact it is really System that does operation.

Any ideas?

Thank you
