Track Deleted Files in the Server Logs

It is possible to configure the Vault Server logs in 2011 or later, so that Administrators can get a record of files deleted by Users.

To do this, you will need to go to the Web.Config file on the Server (Important: Make a copy before making changes), this will be located here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\ADMS Professional 2011\Server\Web\Services

Open the Web.Config file in Notepad, then after < switches > add the following:

< add name="LogFileDeletesBooleanSwitch" value="1"/ >

Once the line has been added, restart IIS (IISRESET) and you will begin seeing this information logged in the Server Logs:

08/02/2011 15:56:10 Files have been deleted from the vault.

User:'Administrator'; Vault name:'Vault'; Vault filestore root:'C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\VaultServer\FileStore\Vault'

Vault file:'$/Designs/05699952/TEST1-ISO 7047 (Z) - M4x16 - 4.8 - Z.ipt';  Relative filestore location:'000\000\000\000\000\000\128'
