If you configure FTP server settings, the audit log will be automatically transferred to the FTP server when the number of lines in the file reaches the threshold.

Note: Keep a list of the items such as the IP address you entered in the FTP tab on Edit Audit Log Settings window. You may need to enter them again when an SVP is replaced.
  • You must have Audit Log Administrator (View & Modify) role to configure FTP server settings.
  • Ensure that SVP is connected to the FTP server on a LAN.
  1. Click Settings > Security > Edit Audit log Settings. Click the FTP tab on the Edit Audit Log Settings window.
  2. Perform the following if using a primary FTP server.
    1. Select Enable for the Primary Server.
    2. Select IPv4 or IPv6 on IP Address setting and enter the IP address.
    3. Enter the user name and the password you use to log in to the primary FTP server.
    4. Enter the output folder to which the audit log file is sent with the relative path from the home directory.
  3. Perform the following if using a secondary FTP server.

    2. Select IPv4 or IPv6 on IP Address setting and enter the IP address.
    3. Enter the user name and the password you use to log in to the secondary FTP server.

  7. Manually transfer the audit log file to confirm that the FTP server setting is correct.
    1. Check that the transfer setting task to the FTP server is complete on the Task window. If the task has not completed, wait until it is complete.
    2. Transfer the audit log file to the FTP server manually to confirm that the FTP server setting is correct. For details of manual transfer, see Manually transferring audit log files to FTP servers.

Troubleshooting

A SIM notifies a storage administrator that an FTP transfer has failed. This can occur when the audit log file is not transferred to an FTP server because either the FTP server or LAN has failed. You can view the SIM in the Alerts window. The reference code for a failed FTP transfer is 7C0300. If a SIM is reported, do the following:
  • Resolve the error on the FTP server or LAN, and then manually transfer the audit log file. And then complete the SIM referring to Completing SIM generated when FTP transfer of audit log files failed.

    If the instructions in SIM is not complete, SIM will not be generated on next transfer failure.

  • If the error condition cannot be resolved, download the audit log file to the Device Manager - Storage Navigator computer by clicking Audit Log on the upper right of the Device Manager - Storage Navigator main window.
