Domain Time II Audit Server
Version 5.2

Registry Settings


Most options for Domain Time II Audit Server are set using the Audit Server configuration items in Domain Time II Manager. A few advanced options can only be set by changing the registry. This section explains the registry entries used by Domain Time II Audit Server.

Caution:
Modifying Registry entries requires basic familiarity with the Windows Registry and its operations. Incorrect changes to the Registry can result in unpredictable, perhaps non-repairable, damage, up to and including a non-bootable system! Have a qualified technician make the changes for you if you are not comfortable with the process. We cannot be responsible for registry problems.

The Domain Time II Audit Server settings are located in these keys (click the names to jump to details):

   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
      Software
         Greyware
            Domain Time II Audit Server
               Auth
               Logs and Alerts
               Parameters
               Standby

 

Auth
     
    Authentication settings are located in this key:

       HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
          Software
             Greyware
                Domain Time II Audit Server
                   Auth


    You should not make manual changes to this key or its subkeys unless instructed by Technical Support.

 

Logs and Alerts
     
    Logs and Alert settings are located in this key:

       HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
          Software
             Greyware
                Domain Time II Audit Server
                   Logs and Alerts


Value Name:
 
Value Type:
 
Default Value:
 
Options:
 
Notes:
Multicast by Serial Number to locate non-responding audited machines
 
REG_SZ
 
True
 
True or False
 
Controls whether Audit Server tries to locate non-responding audited machines by sending a DT2 multicast using the audited machine's serial number. Change this value to "False" if your network does not allow multicast to eliminate unnecessary timeouts. Changes take effect at the next scan; you do not need to restart any services.

Value Name:
 
Value Type:
 
Default Value:
 
Range:
 
Notes:
Retries on Contact Failure (range 1-5, default 1)
 
REG_DWORD
 
1
 
1-5
 
Controls how many times Manager and Audit Server will retry to contact a machine that fails to respond to unicast followups. Multiple retries are generally a bad idea, since if a machine fails to respond to a unicast once, it is unlikely to respond a second later. However, in some circumstances, such as auditing remote offices across a poor WAN or dealing with a congested switch or router that is discarding packets, you may want to increase the retries. Changes take effect at the next scan; you do not need to restart any services.
