Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207688
Logs going to /var/log/messages no /var/log/audit/audit.log
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
As of the audit 1.2.7-3.fc5 update, and with -4.fc5, audit messages are going to
/var/log/messages instead of /var/log/audit/audit.log as before.
/etc/auditd.conf is the default:
# This file controls the configuration of the audit daemon
log_file = /var/log/audit/audit.log
log_format = RAW
priority_boost = 3
flush = INCREMENTAL
freq = 20
num_logs = 4
#dispatcher = /sbin/audispd
disp_qos = lossy
max_log_file = 5
max_log_file_action = ROTATE
space_left = 75
space_left_action = SYSLOG
action_mail_acct = root
admin_space_left = 50
admin_space_left_action = SUSPEND
disk_full_action = SUSPEND
disk_error_action = SUSPEND
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The -3 release was broken. -4 should work fine. Is the audit daemon running? Do
you have any message in syslog?
Looks like the -3 release killed the audit daemon, and -4 didn't restart it.
Started it and everything looks good.
