On-Demand Auditing-help needed

Postby redwing on Wed Aug 18, 2004 5:04 pm

I'm having a little bit of difficulty getting On-Demand auditing working.

I've followed the steps in the help file. Added the Audit share to the nullshares list on the server.

I think I've done everything correctly on the client machine I'm trying this out on. Just to be clear though, I'll step through what I've done to it.

It's a WinXP Pro box (the server is Win2K3, and it's a domain based network, and we'll call the domain ABC for now), and I went to control panel --> User Accounts and clicked the "Add" button. I then added a user called "audit" from the ABC domain. I made this user an administrator.

On my Win2K3 server, I created an "audit" user with "audit" for the password, and put that user in the "Domain Admins" group.

I then followed the instructions in the help for configuring WMI on the client machine. Those steps are straightforward, and I won't detail them here.

So when I try to initiate an On-Demand audit, I get the following errors:

When I try from my machine (not the server):
"Failed: Error connecting to remote computer. (Access is denied)"

When I try from the Win2k3 server:
"Failed: Error starting audit. WMI replied:"Access denied".Make sure that the deployment share is included in the NullSessionShares list."

The deployment share IS in the NullSessionShares list, I used the addnullshare.exe tool to add it, and verified this in the registry.

I found the Tools--> Options portion of the product, with the on-Demand Audit tab. I put in my "audit" user and "audit" password and still have no luck, either with "Local Administrator" or "Domain Administrator" selected as the Account Type.

What am I missing here. I really want this to work. On-demand auditing was one of the biggest selling points for me to purchase the product.

On which machine did you add the null session share to the registry?

On the Win2k3 Server, where the product is deployed. Do I need to add this on each client machine that I want to performa an on-demand audit for?

No, you need to add it on the machine that ina32.exe is on.

Well, it's there on my server. Any other thoughts/ideas?

Try moving the deployment to a 2000 server or XP for testing. There may be some issue with 2003 security settings and on-demand audit which we have not reproduced yet.
