    snapshot audit for presence of file (but not content)

      A question came up about auditing against a snapshot. Let’s say that for a particular server/application configuration you want to ensure that a particular file exists, but you do NOT care about the contents of the file being different from the snapshot of the master. Can this be done using an audit job of the snapshot or should this be done using a component template that they build instead?


      For example:


      Server A is running application xyz and part of the configuration for that application is a file called:


      C:\Program Files\xyz\file_1


      However the contents of that file will differ from every server running application xyz, but the file itself MUST exist.


      How would you audit for this using a snapshot?
