Microsoft Audit

Q: Microsoft Audit

I have been asked to oversee a Microsoft Audit for the company I work for.

Is there a piece of software I can run on my PC that will access the server and list all users, details of their system (serial etc)?

Thank You!

Preferred Solution: Microsoft Audit

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Microsoft Audit

I would think the company requesting such would/should provide whatever software you'd need.

I have an Asus Laptop that informs me I cannot upgrade to windows ten while in audit mode.
If this is happening with many vendors , maybe , instead of telling everyone to check with your vendor , you actually create a fix that works?

What do you want to do?
Run a program that well scan systems to see what needs to be replaced?

http://www.belarc.com/ (there is a free one per each PC and one you paid for scans the entire network)

Run a Network Security program to scan all systems on subnet or ip range to see what type of OS, services, users are running and more?
There is a tool from http://www.gfi.com/lannetscan/ that can tell you the above plus show you had your network can be more securied?

Auditing is set up in the Default Domain Policy.  Logon events are going to the Domain Controller.  Logon events are not going to the computer I logon from.  When I check the local audit policy Only failures are being audited and I cannot
change it.  The settings are greyed out as you would assume they would be because of the logon auditing set in the Default Domain Policy.  The Success and Failures are showing up in the Domain Controllers Security Logs.

Hey there people,

The powers that be here in my office want me to run an audit of our network to determine if all of our MS software being used is in compliance with our licenses.

So rather than go through computer to computer, checking everything out, I'd like to just run a program that would go out and find all that out for me. I'd also like something that would put a ton of money into my bank account, but that's another forum.

So anyway, could anyone tell me if there are any programs out there which can perform a network-wide software audit?

Thankyou, thankyouverymuch...

My supervisor handed me a 46 page audit of internet sites that were visited from my logon in an eight hour period. It showed that I was visiting different sites every few minutes, I WASN'T! I leave by browser open all day and mostly use google and yahoo to help out customers locate addresses or phone numbers. Several IP addresses showed up and led to nowhere when I tried trace them down, also sites like go.disney.com showed up several times and showed 5mins of usage each time. Several people use this machine on different days and times with their own logon, could I be a victim of their surfing or spyware? Most sites visited showed less than a couple of minutes and some just a few seconds.

Thanks for your help

My network uses a shared drive, in which everyone has a folder to place working files for their projects. These are not private folders, as multiple people might be working on the same project, so everyone is in and out of everyone else's folder all day. Lately I've noticed an escalation of a problem, where people are, I'm going to be optimistic here, inadvertently dropping person A's folder into person B's.

Is there a way that I can lock down the folder structure at the highest level, while still allowing general access?

Failing that, is there a way to audit these folders, so when I find the misplaced folders I can determine who's responsible? I need to have a talk with them, and give them a Dvorak keyboard as punishment.

A:Audit Folder Changes

Not sure about the first question, thats a step above my pay grade but in general, I think you give people access to modify a folder, or you don't. There may be a better answer for that so I'll let someone else comment on it.

As far as auditing, you should be able to accomplish that, more information is in the link below

Hello,
I am trying to get an event log message to the event viewer, when the IP address changes.
I added a audit configuration to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces

If I change the IPAddress key manually I see audit message, but when I change it using `netsh` command for example no audit is generated.
What am I doing wrong?

Hi

I have written a WMI script to get a list of all installed software on my pc. Is there perhaps a WMI class that can retrieve the serialkey or product key for the software on my pc?

I have seen some freeware audit tools out there that can do this, but do not know how they achieve this.

Is it possible that the info could be retrieved from the registry? I know about the uninstall key which lists software, it doesn't list the serial keyes though.

Thanks

1. i'm using veritas as my software for backing up all the systems and the files for all my software including the file server.

very oftenly, every employee at my company deleted their files without knowing what the hell they're doing. by the time they realize something wrong, they always ask me to restore it back, or even they delete the file and run away from their reponsibl and let the other users notice that they're missing and i cannot see the userid that delete it.

what i want is to monitor the user id that delete the file, is there any way to audit it?

2. i'm using static DHCP, sometime there're some vendors from other department came to my company and wants to use my network resources, i want to limit their DHCP ip by hour, any idea?

A:File audit and clean-up

Welcome to TSG!

The first thing you want to do is to reset the defaults in the BIOS, then use the System Restore CD's to wipe the drive and reload the operating system.

Once you get that done, all should be good.

Make sure you get her a good anti-virus program and teach her to run it at least once a week!

One of the best teaching things would be for you to have HER wipe the drive and reload everything! that way she can learn how to do it in the event that she needs to in the future!

A:Not sure if I am in Audit Mode in Sysprep

if you are in Audit Mode, sysprep.exe should open and appear on the desktop when the OS loads. Also Aero will be disabled, and the UAC will be disabled also. You can also access the Administrator account in C:\Users. And the Panther logs would be able to tell you what state the machine is in, but that could be a difficult read.

Also see: Windows Setup Installation Process

Also:
You need to check the registry:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\State
for something other than IMAGE_STATE_COMPLETE
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Setup for AuditInProgress

A:Audit or Power User?

Are you running XP Pro? Auditing only works on Pro. For more information on auditing, see this KB...

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310399

The differences:

• Administrators. Have complete and unrestricted access to the computer.
• Power Users. Have more limited administrative rights, such as to share files, install local printers, and change the system time. Power users also have extensive permissions to access files in the Windows system folders.
• Users. Have limited user rights and are prevented from making accidental or intentional system-wide changes. User accounts who are members of this group only are referred to as limited user accounts.
• Guests. Have fewer rights than limited users.

A:How to Audit USB Access in Windows XP

As to how they're doing it, I supose it's possible that they are taking the data they want off the server onto the local hard disks, shutting down the computer, booting a linux live CD and then copying data from the local drives to USB that way. It's a bit far fetched, but that's how I'd do it.

I noticed one user is access the usb port...because he took the data from home and copy those data into local hard drive of office system without intimate me...Click to expand...

It sounds like the user is copying data FROM his USB drive to the computer. Does the GPO actually disable the USB ports entirely, or just disable writing to USB??

As for actually monitoring the situation. I'm afraid I can't help with that.

Ok, so here is the thing: Ever since I started syspreping I would go into audit mode and do all of my customization, once done I would finished syspreping.

The issue that I have is that when I go into audit mode (win 8.1 64b) it won't give me the option to activate windows (screen will flick and take me to metro apps), but when I go into audit (win 8.1 32b) the option to activate is there and I am able to activate windows.

My question: Do you have to go into audit mode in order to make a sysprep image? Because I've been told that you do not have to go into it. That you could just install windows, activate admin account, install software/etc and then run sysprep at the end. I though this was the incorrect way to make a proper image..

Thoughts?

Hello,

I have been following these sysprep instructions from Microsoft for creating a custom Windows 7 image: Building a Standard Image of Windows 7: Step-by-Step Guide

I'm on step #6 of "Clean Up the Image". I realized after I rebooted it that I could have actually skipped this step, as I do not need to delete any accounts. But after it rebooted, that is where the error "Windows could not complete the installation..." appears. When I reboot, the same thing happens and it goes into an endless loop. I have read elsewhere that this issue can be caused by the Administrator account not being enabled and that it is disabled by default, but I can't boot into Windows to verify.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to stop Windows from booting into Audit mode without having to re-image and start all over?

Thanks in advance!

I'm a little bit confused, my default Security log has a bunch of noise I don't find relevant at the moment. I went through Local Security Policy and Gpedit and could not find anything that indicates ANY of these are being audited. It is either "no
auditing" or "not configured". Yet I have a bunch of messages about logons and audit policy changes.
Where exactly can I disable specific aspects of Security logging? I do not want to disable trace for Security completely, sometimes I use it to check some WFP events when needed.

I've noticed a ridiculous amount of "Audit Success" entries in the security log. There appears to be an Audit Success entry every couple of minutes for the last couple of months. This can't be right, can it?

Anyhow: The are an alternating "An account was successfully logged on." and "An account was successfully logged off."

I have had about 48,000 of these logs since march.

Does anyone know why I have so many of these Audits?

Hey all,

I am trying to find a way to perform a rolling calendar audit in a workbook with multiple sheets. The workbook is attached for anyone willing to help.

Basically, there are multiple sheets of data sorted into months. Along the left (A) column there are dates within the sheet (months). I need to be able to specificy a start and end date, and have the qualified data within the dates be put onto another sheet for an audit. The tricky thing is that not every date is there - only dates which contain information.

Kind of hard to explain. Any takers?

(Also it may be note worthy that there are much more sheets [one for every month across 3 years] in the original workbook, but for filesize only three are shown in this version.)

Thanks!

In Audit Mode, to install/configure correctly the Windows updates, drivers, softwares, is best to manually activate the Administrator account? If so, how do I do this?

In the passage between the Audit and OOBE mode with the sysprep command, what should I insert in the answer file to make sure that this account is disabled and that its profile is completely removed from the system.

- The entries represent almost every service running on the system.

- The user reports that the computer is fully operational other than the security log filling up.

Hello!
I want to reverse integrate Sp1 and Sp2 to my Vista but i've a little problem with the audit mode. Always when i try to enter it, a error-message pops up "Failed to complete installation. Please restart the installation".
Can anybody help me with my SP1 + SP2 Vista DVD? (I used the tutorial which can be found in this forums)

Btw, i have another question... will vLite be able to edit this Sp1 + Sp2 Vista Image?

Thanks!

Re: vLite and SP2 the answer seems to be no.
But, better decide for yourself.

A:Win10 Enterprise; suddenly in audit mode?

So. I found something. See below:

I cleared CmdLine, removed Respecialize and set the rest of them to 0. This is how these were on other machines made from the same image. After rebooting everything seems to be working again.

I'm still a bit concerned whether there's still something that would need to be set (you know, like what I did to those keys I mentioned earlier) related to sysprep, audit.exe or windeploy.exe. And I'm still worried this might happen again, because I've got no clue what caused this phenomenon.

Only 30 more years to retirement...

A:CloudExperienceHostBroker triggering restart during OOBE after AUDIT

I have this issue, as well... In the event that anyone else has this, I did some digging on this and found a solution for my cause:

TURN UAC BACK ON.
To do this:
1) At the OOBE hit SHIFT+F10 to get a command prompt
2) Turn on UAC: reg add hklm\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\system /v EnableLUA /t reg_dword /d 1 /f
3) Reboot: shutdown -f -r -t 1

Once the computer restarted and entered OOBE everything worked as it should!

Hope this helps.

Hi,

I work for a company with a network comprising of over a 100 workstations with windows vista installed on them, a windows 2008 server and an oracle database with remote access. We are looking for utilities that will let us scan for vulnerabilities, help us identify weak passwords and inactive usernames. Run dictionary and brute force attacks. We also want to monitor access rights from time to time. Please suggest some tools that are not too expensive. We have used freeware but were getting a lot of false positives.

All suggestions welcome!

A:Vulnerability Scanning and Audit for Windows Vista

Hi JB. . .

Looks like you or someone else has quite a job ahead.

For a few of your items like viewing file ACLs, use AccessChk
and AccessENUM - part of the SysInternals Suite written by Mark Russinovich, Microsoft TechNet.

SysInternals Suite (zip) --> http://download.sysinternals.com/Fil...rnalsSuite.zip

SysInternals TechNet site --> http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb842062.aspx

I think SysInternals can do much of what you want -- and it is free, courtesy of Microsoft TechNet. Whether a GUI or cmd/DOS line EXE, be sure to run ALL SysInternals apps at an elevated admin level (RIGHT-click, Run as Admin). Those that execute from a cmd/DOS prompt -
START | cmd.exe | RIGHT-click on cmd.exe | Run as Admin

My favorites used daily - Process Explorer, Process Monitor, AutoRuns.

Please note that NewSID is NOT compatible with Server 2008, Vista or Windows 7.

There is a folder on a network drive that I need to audit the permissions for. I have to find the permissions for the folders and files in it as well. I have used DumpSec and AccessEnum, but the output of both is somewhat unorganized. I want something that will break down the permissions so that I could print them out to give to someone with less technical knowledge. They just need to know who has what permissions to what files. Thanks.

Firstly, you should know that we are working with specific tools which are used to identify the possible threats present on your system so I will analyze the results they produce. As a start we need to have some more up-to-date logs than the ones you have already provided. The current state of the files on your system might have changed so we need to get a clear look on that aspect. DO NOT bring any changes to the system except the ones I tell you to as that may produce more damage than helping us.

there is that whole business regarding the developers pulling the plug on True Crypt, telling everyone not to use their program, and issueing a final version that only un-encrypts stuff previously encrypted by True Crypt.

Besides, I use a desktop and I am not expecting either thieves or government agents to take my hardware away.

What you are asking for would pose an enormous security risk. You cannot create any type of account on a computer unless you are already logged on to it (or the domain it is a member of) with an account with sufficient privileges to do so.

If the computers are members of a domain all you would need to do is login to a domain account with sufficient privileges. If they are not members of a domain you would need access to an account on each computer.

Code Integrity determined that the page hashes of an image file are not valid. The file could be improperly signed without page hashes or corrupt due to unauthorized modification. The invalid hashes could indicate a potential disk device error.

File Name: \Device\HarddiskVolume3\Windows\System32\sxs.dll

Is sxs.dll that Side By Side?

Might explain the constant Event ID 72

Dear all! Currently, I'm looking for software that can help me to see all PCs information and printer which connects to my domain, and it can export that information to *.html or *.pdf. Moreover, I can use that software to take remote control, make inventory. Does anyone know what free software which can archive this option? Thanks,

Hi there,

Is there a way to see the current windows audits that have been set up in a sort of list/log? Basically a new client of ours wants to remove all the audits currently running that are not needed. Due to the large number of audits set up by thier previous support company the event viewer fills up too fast for us see all the audits currently active.

If anyone has a suggestion it would be appreciated.

I've started on the "disable what you can find in the event viewer" part, but having to call in the person in charge of this each time we find another one seems abit of a hassle for thier company and I'm looking for ways to minimize the time he has to spend with us to sort this problem out.

i'm wondering how a "hacker" hides his tracks once he's been in an NT system, especially if he hasn't been in the system using a remote control GUI interface (like pcanywhere). what files does he modify? i'm curious not because we've been hacked, but because i'm trying to learn about network security and i can't find anywhere that this is explained well enough for my novice brain.

Hi there!
As known, there is no official way to update Windows 8.1 under Audit mode. There is the

solultion though. I used this scirpt on my VM Ware Windows 8.1 (Audit mode) many times before without any problem. But sometime ago I tried to update Windows and for any update got the error -
800F0922.
If I put Windows in OOBE mode - there is no problem with updating via standard Update Center.


Could somebody help me how to fix the problem?

Thank you!
P.S. The firmware of VM Ware Machine is set to "efi" mode.

HI

In the Audit mode of Windows 7 SP1 with an only active account (the Administrator account), how do I rename it and put it a password (for security) using the command line without this causes malfunction in the system or unexpected things when I will go in the OOBE mode.

THANKS

BYE

A:Renaming the Administrator account in the Audit mode

You can't do that in Audit Mode.

Exit Audit Mode (boot to OOBE), enable built-in admin account and rename it.
