NTP Software File Auditor for NAS, IBM N Series Edition – An NTP Software Installation Guide
Introduction
Thank you for your interest in NTP Software File Auditor™ for NAS, IBM® N Series Edition. NTP
Software File Auditor monitors file and directory operations for users. NTP Software File Auditor
for NAS, IBM N Series Edition extends our best-of-breed technology to include the IBM N Series
family of products, allowing you to manage NAS-hosted storage as a seamless whole.
Given the architecture of your Filer®, NTP Software File Auditor for NAS, IBM N Series Edition
does its job remotely. NTP Software File Auditor for NAS, IBM N Series Edition uses a connector
service to create a bridge and include Filers as full participants in storage environments
monitored by NTP Software File Auditor. In light of this fact, you will need to install the NAS
connector on one of the Windows® 2000, Windows® 2003 or Windows Server® 2008 machines in
your environment. This may be an existing server, a workstation, or a standalone system.
To be managed by NTP Software File Auditor, version 6.5 or later (excluding version 7.1) of the
Data ONTAP® operating system is required on the Filer.
NTP Software File Auditor for NAS, IBM N Series Edition can be used to manage IBM N Series
Filers, vFilers®, and IBM N Series clusters, or any combination of these systems. NTP Software File
Auditor imposes no restrictions on how you organize or manage your storage. You can monitor
file operations on individual paths, directories, and/or shares.
To install NTP Software File Auditor, a login with administrator rights is needed. You will be
installing three different services: the NTP Software Smart Policy Manager™ service, the NTP
Software File Auditor service, and the NAS connector service.
The NTP Software Smart Policy Manager service should be installed with a domain user account
as its service account. The NTP Software File Auditor service requires a domain user account with
local administrative rights on the IBM N Series Filer. The NAS Connector service uses this account
as well.
Your hardware should be appropriate for the services running on each machine.

NTP Software File Auditor for NAS, IBM N Series Edition – An NTP Software Installation Guide
Preparing the IBM N Series Filer
NTP Software File Auditor for NAS, IBM N Series Edition requires the IBM N Series Filer to run
Data ONTAP version 6.5 or later (excluding version 7.1). If your Filer is not running version 6.5 or
later, you must upgrade your operating system before you proceed. (Please refer to your
NetApp™ documentation for instructions.)
The Data ONTAP 7.1 release family is currently not supported with fpolicy.
Although NTP Software File Auditor does not install any components on the IBM N Series server;
you will need to enable the Data ONTAP fpolicy management service. Follow these steps:
1.
Log on to the IBM N Series server with an account that has administrative privileges.
2.
At the prompt, enter the following command:
fpolicy create NTPSoftware_FA screen
3.
Enter the following command:
fpolicy enable NTPSoftware_FA
4.
To verify that CIFS file policies are now enabled, enter the following command:
fpolicy
These steps create the configuration that allows NTP Software File Auditor to register with and
manage your Filer. They must be completed before you try to configure NTP Software File
Auditor for NAS IBM N Series Edition.

Windows 2000 SP4, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2008

1 GB RAM

150 MB free disk space

Network interface card

NTP Software File Auditor for NAS, IBM N Series Edition – An NTP Software Installation Guide
NOTES:
o
The Remote Connection to the SQL Server should be enabled.
o
The SQL Server user should have db_datareader and execute permissions on the File
Auditor database.
o
The Reporting Service on the database server must grant access to the currently logged
Windows® user while installing the application.
IBM N Series Filer Requirements
The IBM N Series Filer to which NTP Software File Auditor for NAS, IBM N Series Edition will be
connected requires the following:

Data ONTAP v. 6.5 or later (excluding version 7.1)

Network interface card
NOTE: It is strongly recommended that two network adapters be installed in both the Filer and
Windows Server. The connection between the Server and Filer should be a dedicated connection
(i.e., separate from the public network connection). Using a single network adapter will greatly
increase the time required to process data and may cause excessive delays in the environment.
