I am trying to set auditing on a specific file located in a share on a the server. The server is a DC (Win 2003). I enabled Auditing via the Domain Controller Security Policy, and I run GPUPDATE. When I try to set the audit on the file I open Security > Advanced but there is no Auditing tab.

What can possibly cause this?

I believe the user under which I was trying to set auditing does not have the permission. I checked the effective permissions.
