We enabled BSM auditing on a remotely administered Solaris 8 server. We took
the machine down to single-user mode and enabled auditing, then rebooted the
machine. For a certain period of time the system was logging data.
The audit file /var/audit/*not* just stopped growing. I tried running the
- auditconfig -chkconf (No output when the command is run)
- audit -s (Created a new audit file with just the time stamp)
- modinfo | fgrep -i audit
54 78180000 11f8c 186 1 c2audit (C2 system call)
Unfortunately we can't reboot the machine at will, because it is a
Any suggestion on how to troubleshoot this would be greatly appreciated.
BTW is there any real reason to bring down the machine to single-user mode
before enabling BSM? Is it necessary to ensure that the system is quiet, or
is it something more important?
I have included below data from the audit_control, audit_user and
audit_startup files if it helps.
FWIW Software on the box:
