KB-14675: Sessions generated by a VNC terminal are not being audited

Auditing and Monitoring Service ,  

5 June,19 at 06:08 PM

Problem:
Sessions generated by a VNC terminal are not being audited. 

Solution:
To enable auditing on sessions generated by a VNC terminal, Instead of using "vncserver :<display>" to start the VNC Server, please use "SHELL=/bin/cdax/bash vncserver :<display>".

This will specify the SHELL as the cdash audited shell manually when vncserver is ran thus ensuring the session is included in the auditing process.
