Modified by certain X user report

Good Day,

We are currently testing Novell File Reporter.
Is there report that I can generate that will find all files that have been modified by certain X user on the Novell Volume/Novell Network folder?
I know it has some structure File Data reports and wanted to verify which would be the closest that I can refer to get the information above.

Please advise.

trixlopez,

Unfortunately, Novell File Reporter cannot track every modification made
by a particular user on NSS volumes.

The vigil auditing service installed with NSS will track this
information once enabled, though unless properly implemented vigil can
create enormous quantities of information.

I've read Novell File Reporter 2.0.2 has support for PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Server 2012.
If we use one these databases with NFR 2.0.2, would we be able to advance queries like what I have above?

trixlopez,

The issue is that NSS doesn't maintain that sort of metadata natively;
the data you want simply isn't stored in the NSS filesystem for NFR to
collect and present in a report.

The vigil auditing service installed wih NSS you are mentioning here - does it up a lot of resources? Can you please send me a helpful link on how togo about this auditing service.

trixlopez,

It's not something we in the NFMS Support Team are terribly familiar
with, but we recommend starting with the following links:

https://www.novell.com/documentation/oes2/mgmt_nss_vlog_lx/data/bo299y5.html

https://www.novell.com/documentation/oes11/mgmt_nss_vlog_lx/data/vloginstall.html

If that information isn't enough to get you pointed in the right
direction, you may want to ask about vigil on the NSS forums.

Another option is NetIQ Sentinel.
