Audit Policies are not applying to SBS 2003 server
Posted on 2010-01-11
I have an SBS 2003 server that I would like to audit changing permissions on a set of folders.
I set the Audit Object Access setting to success and failure in the Default Domain Controller policy. Then I configured auditing for everyone on the folders. When I noticed that there were no events related to auditing in the security log, I ran the Group Policy Results Wizard. The Audit Object Access was set to no auditing with the Default Domain Controllers Policy as the winning GPO. I ran gpupdate /force and then re-ran the RSOP with the same results.
I also tried adding that policy setting to the Small Business Server Auditing Policy (and performed a gpupdate /force). The RSOP report stated that the Default Domain Controllers Policy was still the winning GPO.
