Enable Windows Audit via MDT 2012 Update 1

Hi All,

I have created the batch file below to enable auditing in Windows 2008 R2...
The batch file works fine when run manually, but it does not set the audit information via MDT 2012 Update 1.

Not sure if I am missing anything, if not is there another way to set it natively via Powershell or WMI.

Thanks in advance

-Steve

BTW does the file run when played inside MDT2012?

Did it run before sp1?

Also please change lines to

echo "1" >> d:\text.txt

etc and see if they run.

D:\ should allow writing.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Hi,

I have piped out the log and it shows that it ran successfully via MDT but the policies are not been applied... Meanwhile if I ran it manually it works fine and applies the policy.

I have only used MDT 2012 Update 1, I have not tried it on the older version.

I was hoping at this stage if no joy then perhaps any suggestions on how to use WMI or powershell to apply the policies...

Thanks in advance
