discovery.listDirectory(target, path[, win64_redirect=true|false])
Retrieves the directory listing of the directory specified by the
path on the specified
target. You cannot use wildcards in the
path. Returns a list of Discovered Directory Entry nodes.
64 bit Windows hosts have the following system directories for holding executables, DLLs, and so forth:
%windir%\system32— 64 bit executables and DLLs
%windir%\SysWOW64— 32 bit executables and DLLs
win64_redirect is an optional flag which enables you to specify whether the search should take place in the 32 bit directory if not found in the 64 bit directory. TRUE means search the 32 bit directory, FALSE means do not search the 32 bit directory if the directory is not found beneath the 64 bit directory. The default is TRUE.
Paths that do not start with
%systemroot%\system32 are never checked for redirection.
On non-Windows and 32 bit Windows systems
win64_redirect has no effect.
win64_redirect flag is new in 8.2.
If the call fails, it returns
none and records the failure reason in the Directory Listing node.
