| AUDITLGN - Users Login/Logout Audit|
The audit module AUDITLGN.NLM is designed for registration of the following events:
USER LOGIN to a NetWare server
USER LOGOUT of a NetWare server
NIGHT CONTROL - control of stations logged on to the server at night ( at midnight).
It allows to find users who don't turn off their computer for the night
The module registers all logon events with a NORMAL status (similarly to MONITOR.NLM program).
If the interval between log on and logoff is shorter then 0.2 seconds an event can be not registered in the system.
The module can control status of maximum of 200 (or 2000) users logged on to the server.
The program enables to present maximum of 77 users logged on to the server at one screen.
The supported platforms:
Nterprise Branch Office V2.0
Installation of AUDITLGN program on NetWare server:
Module AUDITLGN.NLM should be copied to a controlled server to SYSTEM folder on SYS volume.
Start of AUDITLGN.NLM module:
The program can be started from a server console level immediately or automatically as a command line in AUTOEXEC.NCF file:
AUDITLGN /a /ppath /m /n /X
/a - active connections screen is enable (default is disable)
/m - monthly log is enable (default is disable)
/n - night control is enable (default is disable). It is created a separate log file containing a list of stations which are logged on to the server at midnight of every day
/ppath - set the path for log file
path - path for log file: e.g. DATA:LOGS/AUDIT
(!! without char "/" or "\" at the end of line)
in this example log file will be: DATA:LOGS/AUDIT/AUDT0610.LOG (where 06 - short form of year, 10 - current month)
default path: SYS:ETC
/X - a start of the program with this option causes the additional audit records are created in an XML format.
For every event a separate file is created.
Files are written on the SYS volume in the ETC/XMLLOG folder.
Without /X option there is created only a standard event log - AUDITLGN.LOG
auditlgn /a /m /pDATA:LOGS/AUDIT
Default the AUDITLGN.LOG - event log is created on the SYS volume in the ETC folder.
The structure of standard event log is following:
LOGIN: 012 20060219 09:19:57 ADMIN1 IP 192.168.0.121
LOGOUT: 012 20060219 09:44:35 ADMIN1 IP 192.168.0.121
