Your tutor

As we’ve said, you’ll have your own personal tutor. Research shows you’re more likely to succeed in this interactive, customized way, compared with mere self-study or book learning.

Auditing Mailbox Access Using Exchange System Manager and Event Viewer #event #viewer

Auditing Mailbox Access Using Exchange System Manager and Event Viewer

Introduction

Sometimes it may be necessary to track who is accessing other mailboxes and when they are doing it. You can determine a certain amount of basic information via Exchange System Manager and the Event Viewer and that s what I ll cover in this article. I ll also show you how to use PFDAVAdmin to determine which folders have been accessed.

In Exchange System Manager, the Mailboxes and Logons objects are found under each mailbox store that you create on an Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003 server. Both of these objects can be used to display the Last Logged on By column, which shows you which account last accessed a particular mailbox. A sample screen of this scenario is shown in Figure 1, where the Mailboxes object underneath the default mailbox store has been selected. In the right-hand pane, you can see a list of mailboxes that are contained on this mailbox store, together with the Last Logged on By and Size columns. For the highlighted mailbox belonging to User1, you can clearly see that User1 s mailbox was last logged onto by User3 from the domain NGH.

It s very common for anxious administrators to post security-related queries to newsgroups, forums or mailing lists when they see that the Last Logged on By column references a Windows account different to the one that actually owns the mailbox. For example, Figure 1 above may prompt questions such as Why is User3 logging onto User1 s account? or Is User3 reading User1 s email?

Logging What s Going On

Typically, there is no need to worry here. The Last Logged on By column can be updated in several different ways during normal Exchange operations. It s important to note that this column will update frequently because it can update when a user queries one of the folders belonging to another user. Perhaps the most common event of this variety is where someone s calendar folder is queried, perhaps to see what appointments they have or when their free/busy information is accessed when scheduling an appointment.

In the case highlighted above, unless User1 has granted User3 specific access to their mailbox, or for example the administrator has specifically given User3 the Full Mailbox Access right to User1 s mailbox, it s unlikely that User3 has managed to gain access to User1 s mailbox. A lot of administrators assume that, if they are members of groups such as Domain Admins, they will be able to open anyone s mailbox. However, this isn t the case as Administrators are explicitly denied access to all mailboxes by default in Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003. For more information on this, please see Microsoft Knowledgebase article 821897 .

Of course, unless you manage all aspects of Exchange by yourself, you are going to have to delegate some administrative tasks and therefore trust those responsible for these tasks. However, if access rights are giving you cause for concern, one thing you can do is to temporarily increase diagnostics logging for the Logons and Access Control categories for mailboxes. To do this, run Exchange System Manager and keep expanding the tree until you locate your server object. Once you ve located the server object, right-click it and bring up the properties. On the Diagnostics Logging tab, expand MSExchangeIS and then click the Mailboxes object. Select the Logons and Access Control categories and set them to Maximum. This is shown in Figure 2. You can then scan the application event log for more detailed logon information as and when logon events occur.

Take the case where User3 successfully accesses User1 s calendar, perhaps because User1 has the calendar default permission set to the Reviewer role. Scanning the event log, we ll see an event ID of 1016 with a category of Logons. It will look similar to the one shown in Figure 3:

Event ID 1016 is essentially self-explanatory when you read the description, in that it means that the specified Windows NT account accessed the specified mailbox but is not the primary account for that mailbox. As I said earlier, the classic case here is when someone accesses someone else s calendar. Exchange 5.5 used to log the 1016 event ID regardless of what the diagnostic logging level was set to. However, in Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003, you need to set the diagnostics logging levels as I ve previously described in order to see this event.

What about automated processes, like antivirus or backup applications? Or perhaps Exchange s Mailbox Manager feature? Sure enough, these will also produce logon events like the 1016 event ID as shown below in Figure 4. Note that the logon account here is NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM .

So we ve now seen that event ID 1016 is a key event to scan for when reviewing who is accessing other mailboxes. Let s now take a look at the other event IDs that you may see whilst reviewing the event log.

Other Event Log Entries

Event ID 1013 is very much a companion event for event ID 1016. Event ID 1013 informs you that the specified user account has opened an additional mailbox. Take Figure 5 below as an example. Here you can see that the domain user NGH\User1 was validated as the user whose legacyExchangeDN is listed as /o=NGH/ou =First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=User1 but then logged into the mailbox whose legacyExchangeDN is listed as /o=NGH/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=User2. In this case, it s because User1 opened User2 s calendar folder. You ll notice, though, that this event does not tell you what folders or messages User1 has opened. In other words, you may need to supplement your investigation with additional documentation of exactly what permissions are set on individual mailboxes.

Event ID 1009 is an indication that the specified user account logged into the specified mailbox. Take the example shown below in Figure 6, where it can be clearly seen that the domain user NGH\User1 successfully logged into the mailbox whose legacyExchangeDN is listed as /o=NGH/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=User1. In other words, this is normal mailbox logon activity for a user. Note that event ID 1009 also has a category of Logons.

Finally, if you ve ramped up the diagnostics logging for the Access Control category as I covered earlier, you will probably be getting quite a few event ID 1029 entries logged. This particular event log entry tells you that the specified user/mailbox was unsuccessful in its attempt to access a particular folder from another mailbox. An example of this is shown in Figure 7.

In this case, User1 has failed to access a folder belonging to the Administrator mailbox. The very last piece of text within the description field, which has just started to disappear off screen in the picture above, tells you that the folder ID is included within the data section of the event; this folder ID is the highlighted text in Figure 7. We therefore know from Figure 7 that the folder ID is effectively 1-4C. How can we determine exactly which folder User1 has tried, unsuccessfully, to access? To do this, we can use the PFDAVAdmin tool. If you re not familiar with this tool, check out my two-part article here this will tell you where to download it.

I ll now assume that you ve read the PFDAVAdmin article mentioned above as it contains full details on how to connect the tool to your mailboxes. Here s how to use PFDAVAdmin to find this folder ID:

  1. Run PFDAVAdmin and choose to connect to All Mailboxes. Obviously you can also connect to the single mailbox that you are investigating if you so desire.
  2. From the list of mailboxes now presented in the left-hand pane, expand the Administrator mailbox.
  3. Right-click the Top of Information Store object and choose Property Editor from the context menu.
  4. In the Property Editor window, choose ptagFID. 0x67480014 from the Property options field, ensure that the Display radio button is selected, and then finally ensure that the Perform this action on all subfolders of the selected folder check box is selected. This is shown in Figure 8. When you re happy, click the Execute button.
  1. Once the Execute button has been clicked, a separate window should appear containing a list of the folders within the mailbox together with their associated folder ID. An example of this is shown in Figure 9, where you can see that I ve highlighted the folder that has a folder ID of 1-4C. You can therefore see that it was the Administrator s calendar folder to which access was attempted.

Summary

Auditing mailbox access with Exchange System Manager and the Event Viewer can give you basic information on what s going on when it comes to seeing who is accessing other mailboxes. It s not a perfect solution by any means but it s another combination of tools in your toolkit when you need to track down permission issues. Using PFDAVAdmin to determine which folder has had failed access attempts could prove very useful.

Shaping Employees for The Future: Creating Value For Organisations

The workforce of tomorrow will be dramatically different from the workforce of today and yesterday. New trends are influencing the future of work. This will result in us working very differently in the future as compared to the past. In the past, rules were set and passed down to employees. In the future, the employee will drive how work gets done. Ironically, we are moving into an environment where it is no longer about employees needing the organisation, it is becoming more of the organisation needing the talent

KB1873: How-To Export Windows Event Logs #windows #event #log #management

#

How-To Export Windows Event Logs

Purpose

When submitting a support case for technical assistance, it is sometimes necessary to upload relevant Windows event logs in addition to the Veeam logs. Event logs exported using default settings can be missing important information. This article describes three different methods of exporting Windows event logs and which logs tend to be most useful for certain types of support cases.

Solution

Below are the three common methods a Veeam Support Engineer may request you gather event logs for them. If they have specified a specific method, please use the requested method.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
Method 1: Export EVTX with Display Information (MetaData)
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

An .evtx file alone does not contain the text of most events, so uploading an .evtx file without the associated Display Information can delay resolution of your support case. Even with the display information, an .evtx contains only the UTC time of the events and not the source time zone (Event viewer adjusts the displayed time to your local time zone).

Steps to Export .evtx with Display Information

  1. Open Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc).
  2. Locate the log to be exported in the left-hand column.
  3. Right-click the name of the log and select Save All Events As…
  4. Enter a file name that includes the log type and the server it was exported from.
    For example, when exporting the Application event log from server named HV01, enter Application_HV01.
  5. In Save as type. select Event Files .
  6. Include display information.

7. Be sure to include the LocaleMetaData folder when packaging logs for upload.

Please package all files into a single .zip archive. For information on uploading files to Support, see: Steps to Compile Logs

To export and then archive an event log from the command line, see: Archive an Event Log

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
Method 2: Export as CSV
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

  1. Open Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc).
  2. Locate the log to be exported in the left-hand column.
  3. Right-click the name of the log and select Save All Events As…
  4. Enter a file name that includes the log type and the server it was exported from.
    For example, when exporting the Application event log from server named HV01, enter Application_HV01.
  5. In Save as type. select CSV (Comma Separated) .

Please package all files into a single .zip archive. For information on uploading files to Support, see: Steps to Compile Logs

To export and then archive an event log from the command line, see: Archive an Event Log

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
Method 3: Collect entire log folder from Windows.
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

  1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs
  2. Archive (ZIP\7z\RAR) the entire contents of the Logs folder.

Please package all files into a single .zip archive. For information on uploading files to Support, see: Steps to Compile Logs

To export and then archive an event log from the command line, see: Archive an Event Log

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
Which Logs to Export
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
Veeam Support will request logs as needed, but you can speed up resolution of a new case by checking to see if it falls into one of the categories below and uploading appropriate event logs during case creation.

• For Hyper-V Snapshot (Shadow Copy) Failures
──────────────────────────────
Export the following event logs from the standalone Hyper-V host or from all cluster nodes :
○Windows Logs System
○Windows Logs Application
○Applications and Services Logs Microsoft Hyper-V-VMMS Admin

If Application-Aware Image Processing is enabled in the Backup or Replication job settings, test whether the failure occurs with that setting disabled.

If the problem occurs only when Application-Aware is enabled, export the Hyper-V-Integration log from the Hyper-V host managing the VM, then see Guest Processing Issues below.

○Applications and Services Logs Microsoft Hyper-V-Integration Admin

Common examples include failure to truncate Exchange or SQL transaction logs, “VSSControl” error codes, and unexpected behavior occuring with the VM guest OS during backup.

Export these logs from the affected VM guest OS:
○Windows Logs System
○Windows Logs Application

You will typically also want to collect the Veeam VSS logs from the VM – see KB1789.

• For Problems with Backup Infrastructure Servers
──────────────────────────────
In all scenarios below, export the following from the appropriate server. When in doubt, export from the Veeam Backup server:
○Windows Logs System
○Windows Logs Application

If the error message is:
○“task failed unexpectedly” – Export events from the Veeam Backup server.
○referring to backup files on a Windows server – Export events from the repository server.
○referring to backup files on a CIFS/SMB share – Export events from the gateway server, or from the Veeam Backup server and all proxies if no gateway was specified in the repository settings.

St Luke s Hospice Open Garden Event, Plymouth, Devon – Gardens –

St Luke’s Hospice Open Garden Event, Plymouth, Devon

Gardens ranging from the unique and personal to the very grand are opening across the county for a very good cause.

From April, St Lukes Hospice, Plymouth, is launching the scheme to give the public a chance to discover the beautiful, often hidden, gems of the South West. Located across Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall, each garden will open up throughout the year to help raise vital funds for the charity.

Hayley Dann, Fundraising Manager for St Lukes said: We really do have some fantastic gardens ranging from the unique and personal to the grand and immaculate grounds of some of the regions stately homes. By launching now and going through to the summer, the public will get to see the gardens at their finest.

St Lukes Hospice relies heavily on community fundraising as Government funding covers less than 30% of its annual 5m running costs. Each year, St Lukes needs to raise at least 3.5m from the communities it serves in order to stay open. That is why public support is so very important. Organisers hope that the Open Garden Scheme will be a fresh new idea that helps to raise valuable funds whilst giving local people the opportunity to appreciate beautiful gardens, some of which they might not normally have access to.

As well as featuring some of the most extravagant and impressive gardens in the South West, including the truly spectacular property and grounds of Gnaton Hall, Yelverton, a number of St Lukes supporters have signed up to showcase private gardens that are not normally on show to the public. Visitors will definitely be spoilt for choice.

One such supporter is Clem Spencer, who is known throughout Plymouth for his beautiful garden. Each year, Clem opens it up in aid of St Lukes and holds an art exhibition. This gives visitors the chance to appreciate the exhibition in a tranquil space surrounded by the beauty of Clems garden. The many hours he spends preening and pruning ensures that it is always at its very best.

If taking a stroll around magnificent gardens isnt enough, there will be art exhibitions, plant sales and the promise of much more besides meaning that there will be something for the whole family.

St Lukes has been providing specialist free palliative medical and nursing care for patients from across Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall since 1982. Staff and volunteers are passionate that patients should have dignity and choice at a time in their lives when they may feel they have none.

There is a shared vision at St Lukes and that is to provide the very best care to all life-limited and terminally ill patients wherever their preferred place of care might be hospice, hospital or home. It is fundraising initiatives such as the Open Garden Scheme that help to make that vision a reality.

A brochure, complete with dates and details for each garden involved will be available soon from the charitys website. So, this year, why not support St Lukes and take the opportunity to walk around some of the South Wests most exquisite gardens you will be assured of a warm welcome!

Software for Structures

SOFTWARE FOR STRUCTURES is a software development, research and consulting firm. Our software goal is to have a website where structural engineers and analysts, educators, and students can find a collection of powerful, useful, and easy to use online calculations and models. Our specialty is analysis of structures: beams, trusses, columns, plates and shells. Our programs include the disciplines of civil, mechanical, spacecraft, aviation, chemical engineering, and science. We provide solutions to very common problems like bending of plates, statically determined and indeterminate (continuous) beams, stress analysis of trusses, buckling of plates and columns, as well as complicated problems of nonlinear behavior and stability of thin shells. In our online structural engineering software we use the typical methods for simple structures (beams and trusses) providing the clients with all main steps of the solution, which is especially helpful for student training. For solving complex problems, for instance problems of nonlinear shell theory, we apply our know-how approaches based on our previous research.

We provide the best online curve fitting (data fitting) calculation, whose result is represented by graphs and simple-to-use formulas based on generalized Pade (rational) functions. The accuracy of data fitting can be managed by choosing values of correlation coefficient or error of approximation or number of coefficients of Pade function. This curve fitting calculation is getting popular among chemical, material and reliability engineers as well as experimental researchers.

Bending of beams and plates, buckling of plates and columns are the most important parts of Structural, Civil and Mechanical Engineering courses at university level. Our online software could be used by students for self-training and is very helpful by completing assignments because it provides all main steps of solutions.

Recently we have added a set of online calculations for reliability. Non-parametric estimation of event probability (rank-regression models) was added. The Weibull prediction calculator based on Maximum Likelihood and Rank Regression methods is also included now. The confidence bounds are calculated using the Fisher Matrix or the Likelihood Ratio method. In addition, the recurrent process (imperfect repair) is considered using Kijima models with the following underlying lifetime distributions: Weibull, Normal and Log-Normal. Time to repair can be also introduced into the calculation. The Maximum likelihood and efficient advanced Monte Carlo methods are used. Confidence bounds can be estimated in the online calculation. Finally, maintenance optimization calculation is provided, which is based on the above imperfect repair model with the underlying Weibull distribution function.

SOFTWARE FOR STRUCTURES is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and was formed in 2002. It is owned and operated by Alex Yevkin, Ph. D. in Structural Engineering, Doctor of Science in Applied Mathematics, and Gleb Yevkin, B.Sc. in Computer Science.

In addition to software development, SOFTWARE FOR STRUCTURES provides consulting and research in the areas represented by our software. As you surf through our website, you may notice that many calculations are free.

Please let us know by email what other software you would like to see developed.

Forbes Hospice event held at the Fairmont

May 26, 2014 12:00 AM

By Natalie Bencivenga / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

When and Where: Wednesday at the Fairmont, Downtown.

Why: Forbes is the oldest nonprofit hospice and palliative care program in the Pittsburgh region, according to Keri Harmicar, community relations manager. This anniversary celebration honored founder Rose Ferraro, 94. An award has been established in her name to give to one of Forbes first volunteers, Jean Robinson, who has been volunteering for 35 years.

Fun tidbit: Interior designer Jonathan Rondinelli (wearing a #SEENBowtie. check out his picture online) designed the In Patient Unit Family Room (for free!) at Forbes Hospice after meeting Ms. Harmicar. “It was such a no-brainer. How could you say no after learning about this organization? Plus, Keri’s charisma pulls everyone in who knows her!”

#SEEN among the roughly 200 guests: David Seman, Braden Barker, Charles Christen, David Bennett, Kate Colligan, Marc Giosi, Nick Stupakis, Eileen French, Carl Macino, Charlene Campbell, Amy Scanlon, Bob Strauss and Peter Kope.
