Configure Security Auditing

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can use Fax Service Manager to enable security auditing and assign ownership for an object.

If you enable auditing, you can track user attempts to perform fax operations and configuration changes, log on and off computers, and change audit settings. You can choose a group or user account, and then choose which fax operation to audit for each group or user. You can select a success or failure attribute for each fax operation. The results will appear in Event Viewer.

To configure security auditing for fax users and resources
  1. To first confirm that system auditing is enabled, open Local Security Policy.

  2. In the left pane, double-click Local Policies, and then click Audit Policy.

  3. In the right pane, double-click Audit system events, and then do the following:

    1. To enable auditing when an event is successful, select the Success check box.

    2. To enable auditing when an event fails, select the Failure check box.

  4. Then, to configure auditing for the fax server, open Fax Service Manager.

  5. In the left pane, right-click Fax, and then click Properties.

  6. On the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click the Auditing tab.

  7. To set up auditing for a new user or group, click Add. In Enter the object name to select, type the name of the user or group for which you want to audit events, and then click OK.

  8. In Auditing Entry for Fax, under the Successful or Failed columns, select the check boxes for the access permission that you want to audit for the user or group.

  9. Later, to remove auditing for an existing user or group, on the Auditing tab, click the name, and then click Remove.

  10. To view or change auditing for an existing user or group, on the Auditing tab, click the name, click Edit, and then in Auditing Entry for Fax, under the Successful or Failed columns, select the check boxes for the access permission that you want to audit for the user or group.
