Configuring Audit Policy

The NetApp Filer command prompt is accessible through SSH/Telnet connection (Verify your NetApp Filer settings), or via the web interface. To access it via the web interface, open NetApp Filer GUI, and navigate to FilerView > Filer > Use Command Line:

Perform the basic configuration commands

  • To get an option value:
  • options < option_name >

  • To set an option value:
  • options < option_name > < option_value >

For example, to enable the cifs.audit.enable option, execute the following command
options cifs.audit.enable on

Note: For a full list of commands along with their desccriptions, please refer to NetApp reference document.

Configuring CIFS Auditing

Certain pre-requisites for the audit options have to be enabled to generate the file audit events and automatically capture the events as EVT files.

options cifs.audit.account_mgmt_events.enable off

options cifs.audit.logon_evetns.enable off

options cifs.audit.liveview.enable off

options cifs.audit.enable on

options cifs.audit.file_access_events.enable on

options cifs.audit.autosave.file.extension timestamp

options cifs.audit.autosave.file.limit 10

options cifs.audit.autosave.onsize.enable on

options cifs.audit.autosave.onsize.threshold 100%

options cifs.audit.autosave.ontime.enable off

options cifs.audit.logsize 268435456

Also, you must disable the cifs.audit.liveview.enable option, since it interferes with the ADAudit Plus's processing the audit data.
