Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • CIFS
  • NFS
  • Auditing

Answer

  • By default, ONTAP does not audit, record, or log file access events via NAS protocols
  • While it is possible to configure NAS auditing, this must be configured prior to an access event
  • Events can not retroactively be audited if an auditing configuration did not exist at the time of file access
