[WARNING] The following error occurred when trying to perform automatic audit configuration

Email It to Me Print this Page
Symptoms I get error messages in Change summaries saying:

DC collection warnings:
%DCName% The message is: [WARNING] The following error occurred when trying to perform automatic audit configuration: %Error details% 
Cause Netwrix Auditor has a feature of automatic audit configuration for Active Directory, Group policy and Exchange servers.
It is actually recommended to use this feature in small/test environments only.

If you enable this feature during Managed object (Monitoring Plan) creation, the product will try to adjust audit settings during each collection.

However in case of any conflicts with already applied settings, audit config will not be adjusted and the warning message above will be shown.
Resolution There are 2 options to fix the issue:
1) Remove or reconfigure settings that are conflicting with automatic audit configuration. Error details should specify which GPO affects this
2) Disable automatic audit configuration per KB1887
