Event ID 6272 – Network Policy Server Granted Access To A User
|Sub-Category||Audit Network Policy Servers|
|Description||The network policy server granted access to a user.|
Events which are audited under the Audit Network Policy Server sub-category are triggered when a user's access request are related to RADIUS (IAS) and Network Access Protection (NAP) activity. The requests are of the following types: Lock, Unlock, Grant, Deny, Discard, and Quarantine.
Every IAS and NAP user access request generates an audit event if the Network Policy Server auditing is configured, and if the NAS and IAS roles are installed on the server.
