Central Logging / Email Notification RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    I really like NAP, and really interested in the blog site and am looking forward to deploying when longhorn is released.

    Question - When a computer/user violates a health policy is there any fancy central logging on the NPS server eg HTML web pages?. And/Or email notifications?.

  • Hi Rob,

    There are a few ways to handle NAP logging.

    1.  The local NPS event log

    2.  To a SQL DB

    3.  MOM

    Out of the box, there is no means to e-mail an admin if someone violates policy, but for an enterprise, this is exactly what MOM will give you.  There will be a NAP MOM pack that will also log infomration from NAP clients as well, and I believe e-mail notifications are built into MOM. 

    If you preferred to use a SQL DB then you could write a stored procedure to notify you via e-mail when a threshold is reached, howeer, I am not an SQL developer so don't ask for details :-)

    So, central logging, yes, there are solutions, but instant notification of violations will take additional software and/or some work.
