NT 4 Server & File Auditing...

Post by ryarge » Wed, 13 Aug 2003 04:16:17

I need to know if once File Auditing is turned on with an NT 4 Server
if it is one for everyone or if it is truly something that can be
monitored on a single user in the file system. I have searched and
searched but found no answer to this. I have always operated under
the impression that once it is turned on it is turned on for everyone
in your network and on every file/folder in your file system. However
- there is a way to edit the policy to either act on "Everyone" or by
user and/or group. As well as specific areas of ones given network
file system.

Right now my customer is operating under the impression that his
overhead will be minimul as he is only monitoring one particlar user
in the network. My understanding is that no matter how he tries to
configure it it is going to monitor "Everyone" whether he wants it too
or not. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.


1. Migration - NT Server 4 (PDC) & NT Server 4 running Exchange Server 5.5 to SBS2000

2. NT PDC file server -> Samba PDC file server

I've read the HOWTO and seen a zillion articles about moving from an NT PDC
to a Samba PDC. Am having trouble tying this in to making the new Samba PDC
act in the same file server capacity as the NT machine did. i.e., looking
for info on copying the directories & files while preserving user & group

Can someone point me to a guide(s) on this whole process? Also, in what
order does this occur? As I understand it once the Samba machine becomes
the PDC, you must immediately shut down the NT PDC. So how do you copy the
shares & directories over with correct permissions at this point? If you do
it beforehand, how does Samba "know" how to keep the permissions? Sorry if
I've missed the info somewhere.
