Hello,

I have a mixed network going on. I have Windows 2000 Servers that serving as Exchange server and another as a File Server. I also have a NAS. I am looking to setup auditing on the Windows 2000 File Server and the NAS. Can anyone help me on this?

Thanks

Your best bet is to go into domain security policy on your domain controller.  You can access this through the administrative tools or through adding the snap in to the mmc (microsoft management console)

In there you will have a number of types of policy which can be expanded.  One is audit policy.  A whole range of logging can be set here which will allow you to do some in depth auditing.  

My only comment here from past expereince of audit is to regularly check your event viewer security section as audit data soon fills up.  The info it gives you can also be hard to analyise.  I would personally reccomend looking at specialist packages.  A good one is LT Auditor +  Have a look at www.altman.co.uk for more info.
