Monitoring changes to CIFS share permissions and NFS Export Policies


I'm trying to find a solution to monitor any changes to permissions on CIFS shares as well as any changes to Export Policies for NFS in CDOT 8.3. Something as simple as an informational email would suffice. Is CIFS auditing the way this would be done for CIFS? For Export Policies are there any options?





Auditing options are available:

Refer page 421 in https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_get_file/ECMP12454941 CIFS guide

page 129 in https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_get_file/ECMP12454943 NFS guide

If this post resolved your issue, help others by selecting ACCEPT AS SOLUTION or adding a KUDO.


@Sahana thanks for your reply. On the CIFS, I only want to know changes to the root of the share. Is that something that CIFS auditing covers or is it just the files or folders within the share?


On the NFS auditing, I only want to monitor export policies. The documentation, unless I'm missing it, doesn't address that specifically.


Basically I'm not seeing that those two things are specifically addressed in the auditing but maybe I need to try some of these things out in a lab environment.
