Get the Windows Advanced Audit Policy configuration from remote machines with PowerShell

As part of our Server Documentation Tool we have now expanded it's security audit capability.

The system can now gather information about the advanced audit policy of a Windows machine all the way to Windows 10.

The information is gathered from remote machines without an agent being installed using Windows PowerShell remoting.



In a similar fashion to the Group Policy Console or the Auditpol.exe tool the following category or subcategory information can be obtained.

The auditpol.exe tool gives you the definitive configured settings, and it is the same API that XIA Configuration Server uses to determine the active audit settings. In addition to auditpol.exe however we also collect information about whether the setting is configured locally or using Group Policy, and if using Group Policy which policy is effective in applying this setting.
