Event ID 5145 – A Network Share Object Was Checked To See Whether Client Can Be Granted Desired Access

Event ID 5145
Category Object Access: Detailed File Share
Type Success Audit

Every time a network share object (file or folder) is accessed, event 5145 is logged. If the access is denied at the file share level, it is audited as a failure event. Otherwise, it considered a success. No event is generated if access was denied on the NTFS level.

This event log contains the following information:

  • Security ID
  • Account Name
  • Account Domain
  • Logon ID
  • Object Type
  • Source Address
  • Source Port
  • Share Name
  • Share Path
  • Relative Target Name
  • Access Mask
  • Accesses

Why does event ID 5145 need to be monitored?

  • To ensure the Source Address is from our internal IP range
  • To ensure certain computers do not connect with certain others
  • To monitor if critical files or folders are shared by accident, and to monitor the access attempts to such files
  • To ensure only allowed accounts are attempting access to certain files
  • To monitor the Access Request Information for WriteData, AppendData, AddFile, WriteEA, DeleteChild, WriteAttributes, DELETE, WRITE_DAC, WRITE_OWNER access attempts
