Change Auditor for Windows File Servers 7.0.3 - Event Reference Guide

Introduction

Change Auditor for Windows File Servers tracks, audits and alerts on file and folder changes in real time, translating events into simple text and eliminating the time and complexity required by native auditing. The auditing scope can be set on an individual file or folder or an entire file system recursive or non-recursive. You can also include or exclude certain files or folders from the audit scope in order to ensure a faster and more efficient audit process.

In addition to real-time event auditing, you can also enable event logging to capture Windows File Server events locally in a Windows event log. This event log can then be collected using InTrust to satisfy long-term storage requirements.

This guide lists the events that can be captured by Change Auditor for Windows File Servers. Separate event reference guides are provided that list the core Change Auditor events (when any Change Auditor license is applied) and the events captured when the different auditing modules are licensed.

 

Change Auditor for Windows File Servers Events

This section lists the audited events captured when Change Auditor for Windows File Servers is licensed and custom file system auditing templates are applied to Change Auditor agents defining the files/folders to be audited. These events are listed in alphabetical order by facility.

 

Moving a parent folder: For a ‘Move’ operation, only one event will be generated for the parent folder because action is only on the parent folder’s path, none of the child folders or files are physically moved.
Deleting a parent folder: For a ‘Delete’ operation, an event will be generated for each folder or file because each object will be removed separately.
Copying a parent folder: For a ‘Copy’ operation, an event will be generated for each folder and file because a new object will be created within the target folder.

If a parent folder is copied to a target folder that is not being monitored, no event will be generated. The target folder must be monitored in order for an event to be generated.
