Hello

 

I have noticed that the Netwrix Password Auditor database is being closed/opened every 3 or 4 minutes. This appears in the Windows Application Log as:

 

Log Name:      Application
Source:        MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS
Date:          07/02/2018 14:47:41
Event ID:      17137
Task Category: Server
Level:         Information
Keywords:      Classic
User:          HTLINCS\administrator
Computer:      Janus.htlincs.local
Description:
Starting up database 'Netwrix_Auditor_EventLog'.

 

I have resolved this type of excessive logging in the past on a different SQL database by using SQL Management Studio to change the Auto Close option from True to False.

 

Is it safe to do this for the Netwrix_Auditor_EventLog database?

 

Thanks

 

Mark

Hello,

 

I don't see any issue with this.  However it should be noted that this database is for Netwrix Event Log Manager as Password Expiration Notifier does not have a database.  If you don't need ELM you could disable that product and not have to worry about this DB.

Aha! Thanks - don't know why I assumed it was PEM. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll change the option and see what happens.

 

Cheers :)
