Change Auditor for Skype for Business 7.1.1 - User Guide


If events are not being displayed or the agent is not refreshing and updating its configuration:

Skype for Business Auditing wizard

To audit Microsoft Skype for Business Server and Microsoft Lync Server events, you need to define a Skype for Business auditing template for the Central Management Store to audit. You can also use this wizard to modify a previously defined template.

The following table provides a description of the fields and controls in the Skype for Business auditing wizard.

Template configuration options

Template Name: Enter a descriptive name for the template being created.

SQL Server: When you open the Skype for Business auditing wizard, the SQL Server and Instance hosting Central Management Store are retrieved from Active Directory and automatically populated on the page.

However, if the Microsoft Skype for Business Server / Microsoft Lync Server and the coordinator are deployed in different Active Directory forests, enter the Central Management Store (CMS) SQL Server fully qualified domain name and select the SQL Instance type (Default or Named SQL Instance) to continue.

SQL Instance Credentials: Select the CMS SQL database authentication type and enter the credentials required to connect to the Central Management Store database server.

Test Database Credentials: (Optionally) Select to validate the credentials when the template is created to ensure that the database can be accessed.

Agent Configuration: The agent server is automatically populated with the SQL server name if the agent is deployed on it.
