Instructions on how to exclude some file/folders/shares from auditing by Netwrix Auditor
||How to exclude files, folders or shares from auditing by Netwrix Auditor for File Servers?
||If you do not want to audit every folder and/or file defined on the file server's shares or are monitoring the whole server but want to omit a specific share, you can omit them using the omitpathlist.txt file.
1. Navigate to the product installation folder via Windows Explorer (Fig. 1):
x86 - C:\Program Files\Netwrix\File Server Change Reporter
x64 - C:\Program Files (x86)\Netwrix\File Server Change Reporter
2. Open the omitpathlist.txt file (Fig. 2)
3. Add the paths you do not want to be audited. For example:
File Exclusion: \\server\share\folder\filename
All Files in a Folder Exclusion: \\server\share\folder\*
All Folders in a share:\\server\share\*
4. Save modifications made to the file.
Note: The above changes will not take effect until the next data collection (3AM by default). Also this will only omit changes/reads made on those files/folders that are excluded. It will not omit warnings/error related to those files/folders such as access denied.
