SharePoint 2010-Cannot view audit log reports on site collection
Auditing-Knowing who is taking what action on which content in your site collection can be critical in helping your organization fulfill its requirements, such as meeting regulatory compliance and records management? You save an audit log report as a Microsoft Excel 2010 workbook to a library in the site collection that you specify.
Would like to highlight some nice contribution from Amol Ghuge on auditing configuration:http://sharepointknowledgebase.blogspot.in/2010/09/sharepoint2010-site-collection-auditing.html
But now in this article, I am trying to concentrate on one of the incident which has been faced by the local team members.
The issue was: After being enabled the Audit log reports, the link to "Audit log reports” remains unavailable (does not appear) on site collection settings
See, it was very easy to troubleshoot this issue so I request you to follow the below mentioned steps and I am pretty much confident that your issue will be resolved.
I am providing you two options here so you can use anyone as per your flexibility.
Note: in both the options, you must be site collection administrator for the site collection.
· Open command prompt ( Start-> Run and type cmd )
· Change to the SharePoint 2010 path (\programfiles\Common files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\bin)
· Run STSADM.EXE -o activatefeature -name Reporting -url http://sitecollectionurl -force (this may take a while on finishing)
§ On the site that the Audit log reports are going t be activated
§ Site Actions
§ Site settings
§ On Site collection administration section
§ click on Site Collection Features
§ Search for the Reporting feature
§ Click on Activate button
Go back to Site Actions->Site Settings and on Site Collection administration section and verify that the link is available now
Please let me know in case of any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information. I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues
