How to configure a Windows file server to send user access related logs to Splunk ?


I am assuming this could done via GPO (to log events related to file/folder access) and push the GPO policy to the file server (F.S). And install universal forwarder on the F.S to monitor the folder and send logs to the Indexer.

Please let me know if my understanding is right and possibly point me towards the documentation for it.

Thanks in advance.
