Hello, jblanc03,

Have you verified that the logs are not in the C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs folder?

Cheers!

jblanc03,

Ok then.

According to the EMC support forums, here are some options:
1. Use CIFS  – You can get the auditing events in an .evt file that is compatible with Windows Event Viewer.
2. Use the Data Mover Security Settings snap-in (via MMC)
3. Use the serverext_log command -  You can have the datamover write to the log to a different directory.
