Warning: "The Who Changed and When Changed fields in the change report may show incorrect data..." because of disabled tracing
Who changed = "System", Tracing Who Changed and When Changed fields in the change report may show incorrect data warning
KB1489 | Last review: Sep 27, 2017 | Netwrix Auditor for SQL Server | All versions
|Symptoms||Reports and Change Summaries return the “System” value in the “Who Changed” field. Change Summaries and the relevant Session details contain the following warning message:
[WARNING] The Who Changed and When Changed fields in the change report may show incorrect data, because tracing was disabled on the SERVER_NAME during report generation. Tracing is required for the change reporting process, and it has been automatically enabled for future reports.
|Cause||This is a standard notification sent after the first data collection. The settings will be adjusted automatically after the data collection.
You will also receive this message if the monitored MS SQL Server has been rebooted and the tracing stopped.
|Resolution||Consider the following before applying the procedure below:
If the error persists, navigate to the %Netwrix Auditor install folder%\SQL Server Сhange Reporter\Tracing directory, ZIP it and upload to www.netwrix.com/upload.
