I want to create a group share point that has a log that tracks all activity from access, creation, deletion, and upload offload. Is this possible outside of the console and can be setup for easy auditing? Thank you.


Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    Using what protocol?

     

    If you're using AFP you can set the AFP logging options (in Server Admin) to log all this activity.

     

    As for auditing, amassing the data is only half the challenge (the easy half). Parsing the data and making sense out of it is a whole different issue. I'm not aware of any off-the-shelf AFP log analysis tools, but it's all just text so shouldn't be hard to work something out.

    Thanks for responding Camelot. I have already set that up in Server Admin. The issue that I am having is that I am required to audit a very specific Group folder for all activity and there does not seem to be a simple way to do that. It is very difficult to go through the log and derive and information regarding access to that particular folder. What I really need is IP address (which I get those), user name, and what they have done to that folder. Any thoughts or suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you again.

    AFP and SMB protocol by the way

    What is the solution to enable log for SMB/Samba ?
