The Network Folder Audit is a method of LAN audit, based on using audit agents in the standalone mode. Using this method you can audit networked computers on a regular basis. It involves two steps: the deployment of the Inventory Analyzer package to a centralized location, accessible by all networked computers (i.e. a network shared folder), and the automation of the Inventory Analyzer using domain logon scripts or scheduled tasks. Audit snapshots are stored in an intermediary repository on the same network share until they are processed by the Automation Server and imported into the database. The Automation Server automatically reflects changes of the audit configuration made in the configurations of its deployed audit agents using the Network Inventory application.
