    1. Hi,


      I configured Auditd, Audisp and Syslog on an Ubuntu Server 13.04 fileserver and successfully sending the Audit Logs to an external Syslog server.

      I need to add UserName and ProcessName to the logged records before they sent to the external syslog server, besides the UID and PIDs.

      How can I do this?

      Best regards.

      1. Hi,

        Can you please be more descriptive as are you talking about some specific report to be generated along with the username and ProcessName?

        If you could tell me with one example it would be easier for me to understand and help

    2. I am aware about aureport -i whic replaces UID with usernames. But this happens at the same computer which the log produced. I assume that aureportputs usernames instead of PIDs on the fly and the written logs does not contain the real usernames.

      For example here is a record that I captured via syslog:

      node=ubuntu type=PATH msg=audit(1375523870.878:42454): item=4 name="/root/.local/share/Trash/info/New.5.trashinfo" inode=40817 dev=08:02 mode=0100644 ouid=0 ogid=0 rdev=00:00

      I need ouid=0(root) intead of ouid=0

      1. Hi

        Even if we could find a way to show the username instead of uid, it would be too messy to look out for the user you are looking for in the audit.log. So as an alternative you can look out for a way to export the aureport to your remote machine.

        For Example:
        aureport -k -i | grep username > date_aureport.log

        This can give you the report output which you can easily export to remote machine

    3. Dear Prasad,

      I think your blog content and the way how it looks are good. I like your site. I am afraid you might be shooting yourself in the foot however. Would you please consider removing the [like me / follow me] popup (I know it is not an actual popup window). I have to click to close this little announcement / self-advertisement nearly every time I go to a new page on your blog. That is very annoying and will not contribute to liking and coming back to your blog. Some quality podcasts about developing your blog can be found at drt.fm
      Thank you and best wishes.

    9. hi , i m fresher in linux administration having only theoretical knowledge , just curious to know how different it is in it company comparing to the training institutes like realtime challenges.

      1. Its actually a lot of things which obviously when you will join as a fresher will not be the company's expectation. You should concentrate on your basics

        And by basics I mean, you should know and understand if it is working or not, If YES ... then WHY and if NOT then also WHY... HOW ??

        you should be very clear for each attribute you use for any command....or configuration... because this is what will show your eagerness to learn and grow...do not worry about how it works in a company..it will come to you eventually !!!

        My best suggestion..join open Linux forums and see what users post their as an issue and how masters help them troubleshoot... learn from them !!

        All the BEST !!

    10. Hello, I would like to help me with a problem I'm having. I recently installed the GFI EndPointSecurity v5.0 but when scanning devices remote pc does not recognize them and get the error "Failed to enumerate devices", to fix the directive must enable the "Allow remote access to the Plug and Play interface" which mostly is in computer Configuration \ administrative Templates \ System \ device Installation. The problem is that I mounted my Active Directory domain and is not implemented Samba4 policy appears. I would like to explain to me how to get there or if not how to create it. Thanks in advance and sorry for any mistake on my English, because I speak Spanish

      1. Hello, I am not sure if I understood your question correctly. Do you want to create a new Samba4 AD and deploy the "Plug and Play" policy on all the remote computers?

        or if you want locally you can enable this policy on the client computer in case you do not have any AD configured.

      My name is Tanya. I work with InfluencedApp and we are doing online marketing for different brands.
      I wanted to contact you about the possibility of contributing on golinuxhub.com.

      I was wondering if we could contribute a sponsored post, or if you could write a paid article about a project management software and publish it on your website. Please tell me your prices for both options if available.

      I look forward to hearing from you!
      Thank you for your time.
