we have started auditing on our systems (file open, close, write etc.). This

Is there a way to make auditd aware of newly mounted NFS filesystems, so
that we can audit them, too?

Have you looked at the auditctl "-t" (trim) and "-q" (equivalent)
commands?  I'm not certain they do exactly what you want, but may help.

Thanks a lot. I don't understand what "trim" means in this context. Reading the explanation in the manpage ("Trim the subtrees after a mount command") I'd expect this to happen after an UNmount, not a mount...?

However -q looks promising.  I'll give it a try.

Warning that remote filesystems can't be expected to audit changes made
to that filesystem by other systems that have mounted that remote
filesystem unless those rules are running on that remote system.

All rules are running on the NFS clients, not the NFS servers.
