OK, this is a blatant copy of an old posting made way back in the year 2011. However, I have been asked 4 or 5 times, all from different sources, if this is possible with Vault in the last 2 weeks. So, it seems that now is a good time to re-use and recycle an old post.
It is possible to configure the Server logs so that administrators get a record of files deleted by users. (2011 or later.)
In the Web.Config file (first make a copy before making changes) located by default here:-
"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ADMS Professional 2014\Server\Web\Services"
Add the following line after <switches>
<add name="LogFileDeletesBooleanSwitch" value="1"/>
Once the line is added, restart IIS (IISRESET) and you will begin seeing this information logged in the Serverlogs
08/02/2014 15:56:10 Files have been deleted from the vault. User:'Administrator'; Vault name:'Vault'; Vault filestore root:'C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\VaultServer\FileStore\Vault' Vault file:'$/Designs/05699952/TEST1-ISO 7047 (Z) - M4x16 - 4.8 - Z.ipt'; Relative filestore location:'000\000\000\000\000\000\128'
There is now the ability to track file downloads as well if you add this line in the web.config
<add name="LogFileDownloadsBooleanSwitch" value="1"/>
