IF YOU HAVEN'T INSTALLED YET...

You do not need to install anything to your server - the Admin Console is not required to run audits from your server
No ports to open or reserve
No changes to your firewall
No Remote Registry to enable
No Admin credentials needed to run any audit
No SNMP anything
WHAT WE AUDIT
Get everything – and you can define 'everything'.
By default on a Full Audit, that's all .EXE files except the %WINDIR% folders.
But you can choose all folder even the desktop or Downloads.
And with all Full Audits you you can audit file types you want to know about in addition to EXE, like OCX, VBS, DLL even VBS.
Get all executable files, even non-installed .exe files copied to a PC (i.e. portable tools).
Need more? Get driver files, non-program files like music, Office documents, images, it's up to you.
1. Create two folders on your network on a server that all your users have access to. Typically that's your domain server, but it can be any server that fits that description in your particular setup.
shellthis = "\\your_server_name\ezaudit\ezstart.exe"
As you know, Group Policy changes don't always take effect right away, so a gpupdate /force at the server can sometimes nudge things along.
