KB-2695: Logging of dzdo commands in AIX

Authentication Service ,  

12 April,16 at 11:10 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl on AIX platforms.
Why are dzdo commands not seen in the /var/log/secure logs of an AIX system?
By default, an AIX system will not attempt to write to the secure log file. 
In order to have executed dzdo commands logged on an AIX system, do the following steps as root:
1. Add the following two lines to /etc/syslog.conf
auth.debug /var/log/secure 
authpriv.debug /var/log/secure 
2. Create the file "secure" with the command:
  touch /var/log/secure
3 Restart the syslogd with the command:
  refresh -s syslogd
Once this has been done, the information for issued dzdo commands will be logged in /var/log/secure .
