Hi, need to know how to access the Audit Logs on our VNX5300

I am an Administrator on the System so i should have full access.  I just have no idea where to look and google has not been too much help

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello, jblanc03,

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

JB BlancoSr Systems EngineerAuthor Commented:
arent those windows event logs?  im talking about the EMC VNX5300 SAN system.

Are you serious?
Sean Plemons Kelly, CISSPInformation Systems Security EngineerCommented:

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.
