Why Netwrix Auditor cannot configure audit settings for File Servers Managed Object?


Most likely, this is due to enabled User Account Control. ​In this case the Netwrix Auditor System Health log contains the following error:
Cannot configure audit settings for the object <Managed Object name>: A required privilege is not held by the client.
To resolve this issue, do the following:

  1. If your target server is not in a domain, create a user that is not a member of the BUILTINAdministrators group. Grant all required rights and permissions to the account.
  2. Enable User Account Control for local connections only and disable it for remote connections.
