About filer and ontap

Hi Team,

I am an Security Analyst and i was assigned to a Storage Project[Netapp] for which i need some information in regard with the logging..,

Query: what is the difference between netapp filer and netapp dataontap,Do they generate the same type of logs or different types of logs.

If possible can you give me the list of audit logs and its format's generated by filer and ontap.

Any help would be realy appreciated.

Regards,

Iyyappan.

Re: About filer and ontap

  • netapp filer = hardware / data ontap - operationg system
  • see logs at /vol/vol0/etc/log ...
  • options auditlog.*

It's also depends if you are interested in whole SAN security or only DataOntab security.
