KB1267 | Last review: Dec 13, 2017 | Netwrix Auditor for File Servers | All versions
|Question||Does Netwrix Auditor support Distributed File Systems (DFS)?|
|Answer||Yes, Netwrix Auditor supports auditing of DFS and you do not need to specify different shares in the configuration.
As with File Servers, you can configure your file shares for auditing automatically (if you use Netwrix Auditor 8.0 and above) or manually. Refer to Netwrix Auditor Online Help Center for detailed instructions on how to configure audit settings: https://helpcenter.netwrix.com/Configure_IT_Infrastructure/Configure_IT-Infrastructure.html
While creating a Monitoring Plan (Managed Object in Netwrix Auditor 8.5 and below) for auditing DFS, make sure that:
Note: If you enabled DFS replication for the audited file shares, refer to the following Netwrix Auditor knowledge base article for more information: http://www.netwrix.com/kb/2103. In addition, certain out of the box reports that show file/folder moves, renames and copies will only work with non-DFS Windows File Servers. However, Add, Removes and Modifications will still be shown as part of base product functionality and change auditing.
