SQL2-00-010600 - SQL Server must have allocated audit record storage capacity to meet the organization-defined requirements for saving audit record information.


SQL Server does not have the ability to be cognizant of potential audit log storage capacity issues. During the installation and/or configuration process, SQL Server should detect and determine if adequate storage capacity has been allocated for audit logs.

During the installation process, a notification may be provided to the installer indicating, based on the auditing configuration chosen and the amount of storage space allocated for audit logs, the amount of storage capacity available is not sufficient to meet storage requirements. SQL Server is not able to send out notice based on adequate storage capacity allocated for the audit logs.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Use File Server Resource Manager (FSRM.msc) to enable File and Folder Quota Management and create quotas for identified Audit storage locations.
