Yes, run a snapshot job every night on each server. There should be a ‘change tracking’ tab in the snapshot job to see the diff – this tab may only be in 8.0 – otherwise look at the ‘change tracking’ reports in BSARA.
If neither of those work for you I have some scripts that will maintain some rolling audit jobs.
I currently have Discovery and Inventory snapshots.
Can I use these if they contain the files I'm after or do I need to create new snapshots?
Those should work fine if they include the files you need.
Hmm, no tab, must be 8.* thing.
I had a quick look in BDSSA 2.0 at the Change Tracking reports, but the various filters are a little confusing.
i'll go and read the reporting manual and see how I go ;-)
Thanks for the assist Bill, at least I know my understanding of snapshots was correct.
