Hi Experts,

This is an application which stores information from a Microsoft Active Directory object/group changes and NTFS file server permissions levels/changes from a pre-defined location. (typical Windows file server under a Microsoft Active Directory environment)

 I just want to find a way to trigger a change once upon;

1. Active Director object change
2. NTFS file server permission level change for the object in the same Active Directory (example - when an admin user do a file server permission using windows explorer)

and write those change in to a database. (open source or Microsoft technology bases solution)

Can we get these information from Windows Shell or any other way of doing this  ?

Really appreciate your valued comments and guidance on this matter.

Thanks a lot !

If you turn up auditing on your servers, you can use the event log to trigger your application.

You can deploy event log analyser from Manage Engine which should store events in its database

However in order to generate events, you need to set advanced audit polices through GPO in active directory
