Exclude Data from VMware Monitoring Scope

You can fine-tune Netwrix Auditor by specifying various data types that you want to exclude/include from/in the VMware reports.

To exclude data from VMware monitoring scope

  1. Navigate to the %Netwrix Auditor installation folder%\VMware Auditing folder.
  2. Edit the *.txt files, based on the following guidelines:

    • Each entry must be a separate line.
    • A wildcard (*) is supported. For example, you can use * for a class name to specify an attribute for all classes.
    • Lines that start with the # sign are treated as comments and are ignored.
