More information

Step 1

Create the audit database.

One audit database is created for all of the Enterprise Vault servers in the site.

See Creating the audit database.

Step 2

Select the categories to audit.

You configure audit categories on each Enterprise Vault server in the site.

See Configuring audit categories.

Step 3

Start or stop auditing.

You need to start or stop auditing on each Enterprise Vault server in the site.

See Starting or stopping auditing.

Step 4

If necessary, tune auditing.

You can tune auditing by changing the number of connections that Enterprise Vault services can make to the audit database.

There are registry settings associated with the configuration of Enterprise Vault auditing. If you change these registry settings directly using Regedit, instead of using the Enterprise Vault Administration Console, Enterprise Vault auditing cannot capture information about the user who makes the changes. If you want to record this information, configure Windows Registry Auditing for the settings under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Admin\Auditing.


Always configure Enterprise Vault auditing using the Enterprise Vault Administration Console. Do not change the associated registry values directly.
