Hi all

I want to check file access from users. I mean when they accessed a file and if they delete or change it etc. 

I want to see their actions on my fileserver not on their local computers by the way.

How can i write it to the ossec.conf ? or do i need to do anyting.

Thanks for your answers.

Hi Ugur, Hope you are doing well!

As you want to see the File Integrity Monitoring on your servers, you just need to follow the below documentation to achieve this: https://documentation.wazuh.com/current/user-manual/capabilities/file-integrity/how-it-works.html &https://documentation.wazuh.com/current/user-manual/capabilities/file-integrity/fim-configuration.html#fim-examples

Remember to see that exact user, you need to enable the Whodata on the servers/agents, and to enable whodata, you need to start the auditd service on the agent itself.

I hope this helps you. Don't hesitate to ask your questions/concerns.

Regards
Aditya Sharma

Thank you Aditya for your fast answer and i hope you are also good;

I just want to know one think;

My fileserver actually is not a server at all it is more like a disc that user will see data so i can not setup any agent to my fileserver side.

Is it still possible to see the logs that which user changed which file with using the methods you mentioned above ?

Thank you again and sorry for my ignorance because i am very new to wazuh
