Snapshot options

The Snapshot/Audit Options section of the Server Objects panel lets you specify information associated with server objects that should be collected during a snapshot

The following list describes user-selectable attributes for built-in server objects. This list describes some of the more important attributes as well as attributes with names that may not completely describe their function. There are many additional attributes that you can select.

Object name

Description

ACL Owner (Windows NTFS) (Windows)

Store the owner of a file or registry key.

Auditing ACL (Windows NTFS) (Windows)

Store access control entries in the System Access Control List (SACL) for a file or registry key. SACL entries are used to audit actions so they are recorded in a security log. Each access control entry specifies what circumstances trigger an audit, identifies a group or user to monitor, and lists operations to audit.

Checksum (Windows NTFS) (Windows)

Calculate and store a unique key based on all the data in each file. By storing full MD5 checksums, you can compare entire files and detect changes that occur anywhere in a file. Note that computing full checksums requires significant processing.

Contents (Windows NTFS) (Windows)

Store a copy of the physical file on the file server when taking a snapshot. If a snapshot includes a symbolic link to a file, the link must point to a valid file or the snapshot fails. If you are planning to use a snapshot as the basis of an audit and then synchronize files using the results of that audit, you must check this option.

Inherit Auditing ACL (Windows NTFS) (Windows)

Store the setting for a flag that determines whether an object inherits access control entries in the System Access Control List (SACL) from its parent object.

Inherit Permission ACL (Windows NTFS) (Windows)

Store the setting for a flag that determines whether an object inherits access control entries in the Discretionary Access Control List (DACL) from its parent object.

Light Checksum (Windows NTFS) (Windows)

Calculate and store a unique key based on the first 512 bytes of each file (a light MD5 checksum). Light checksums are useful for binary files; they are not recommended for text files.

Permission ACL (Windows NTFS) (Windows)

Store access control entries in the Discretionary Access Control List (DACL) for a file or registry key. Each DACL access control entry specifies whether access is granted, identifies a group or user granted or denied access, and lists actions permitted or denied.
