        I am sorry, but I didn't understand what exactly you need.
        Can you please explain? What exactly are you trying to monitor?

          Hi Sorinso,

          Actaully i want to know the best inbuilt method to find the logs of the windows server.mean to say that every hit to the my server either to any shared folder or any type of hit. This should be for windows . As linux has the log creater .i need the same for windows .i have already use Audit policies but i am unable to understand the logs created ny these policies and these audit policies create a lot of logs like system logs . i want only that X user access H folder from the server and read or copy or delete J file from that at Z time.

          OR you can also help me to understand the logs created by windows

          Thanx in Advance for the help

          Vj

            Hi Shamra,

            The big difficult with the Windows Event Log is the maximum size of log, normally it wont allow you to store more than 350 MB of logs, This is the bug with windows.
            So when you enable auditing in the logs will be filled frequently , specially if you are using AD then its really huge amount of security logs created.

            Microsoft has to take more care about the event log meachanisam when compare to Linux and other OS its very difficult to track using the event log.

            Hope Microsoft will fix this in Windows 2008.

            Experts Please Your comments about event log system of windows.
            Regards,
            Venkatesan S

              Hi Venkatesan

              You are right microsoft should look into this issue and try to make it much simpler as in linux.

              Any expert can give us the idea how to monitor the system
              mean to say view the logs


              Thanx

                  Hi wullieb1,

                  Using windows event viewer its very hard to audit. take an example if i want the logon and logoff event of a list of users for a month time. its very difficult to find out this with event logs of windows.

                  We have to go to logon scripts for the above mentioned purpose, but the problem with logon scripts is user logon time is taking too long.

                  I haven't found any other solution for these problem from microsoft.

                  MVP's Need your comments on this.
