SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You configure a security policy to audit file creations and modifications on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2).
  • You use a network shared folder to create or modify a file on the computer.
In this scenario, the system does not record audit event 567 to report this action as expected. Therefore, you cannot track file creations or modifications that are performed over the network share.
