Can I audit files when using cifs/samba service? Where and how do I enable audit daemon?
I am using NAS4FRee version.

I finally realized that Samba performs auditing files, and I found an example on this
website: "" ... ull_audit/""
If anyone's interested, here's a quick guide:
1. Add these lines in ""Auxiliary parameters"" window (accessible through web browser menu - Services | CIFS/SMB | Settings):
# Audit settings
full_audit: prefix =% u |% I
full_audit: failure = Connect
full_audit: success = connect disconnect opendir mkdir rmdir closedir open close read pread write pwrite sendfile rename unlink chmod
fchmod chown fchown CHDIR ftruncate lock symlink readlink link mknod realpath
full_audit: facility = local5
full_audit: priority = notice
1. To each share where file audit is needed add this line in ""Auxiliary parameters"" window (shares are accessible through web browser menu - Services | CIFS/SMB | Share | Edit):
vfs object = full_audit
1. Audit logs are going to system logger in this example (full_audit: facility = local5)
- location of the system logger in NAS4Free is: /var/log/system.log
P.S. thanks for help
