vfs_full_audit - Man Page
record Samba VFS operations in the system log
vfs objects = full_audit
This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.
The vfs_full_audit VFS module records selected client operations to the system log using syslog(3).
vfs_full_audit is able to record the complete set of Samba VFS operations:
In addition to these operations, vfs_full_audit recognizes the special operation names "all" and "none ", which refer to all the VFS operations and none of the VFS operations respectively.
If an unknown operation name is used (for example an operation name is miss-spelled), the module will fail to load and clients will be refused connections to a share using this module.
vfs_full_audit records operations in fixed format consisting of fields separated by '|' characters. The format is:
The record fields are:
- PREFIX - the result of the full_audit:prefix string after variable substitutions
- OPERATION - the name of the VFS operation
- RESULT - whether the operation succeeded or failed
- FILE - the name of the file or directory the operation was performed on
This module is stackable.
- full_audit:prefix = STRING
Prepend audit messages with STRING. STRING is processed for standard substitution variables listed in smb.conf(5). The default prefix is "%u|%I".
- full_audit:success = LIST
LIST is a list of VFS operations that should be recorded if they succeed. Operations are specified using the names listed above. Operations can be unset by prefixing the names with "!". The default is none operations.
- full_audit:failure = LIST
LIST is a list of VFS operations that should be recorded if they failed. Operations are specified using the names listed above. Operations can be unset by prefixing the names with "!". The default is none operations.
- full_audit:facility = FACILITY
Log messages to the named syslog(3) facility.
- full_audit:priority = PRIORITY
Log messages with the named syslog(3) priority.
- full_audit:syslog = true/false
Log messages to syslog (default) or as a debug level 1 message.
- full_audit:log_secdesc = true/false
Log an sddl form of the security descriptor coming in when a client sets an acl. Defaults to false.
Log file and directory open operations on the [records] share using the LOCAL7 facility and ALERT priority, including the username and IP address. Logging excludes the open VFS function on failures:
[records] path = /data/records vfs objects = full_audit full_audit:prefix = %u|%I full_audit:success = open opendir full_audit:failure = all !open full_audit:facility = LOCAL7 full_audit:priority = ALERT
This man page is part of version 4.18.2 of the Samba suite.
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
