Re: SIALOG

The sialog file is only recommended for troubleshooting. Is not recommended the use for normal system operation (This information I got here in the forum by hp support).


Anyway, if you want to create the file, just use the touch command:

touch /var/adm/sialog

Logging will start after that.

Re: SIALOG

The official response from HP is to NOT use sialog for normal checking for failed authentications, etc. It is to be used only for debugging of SIA applications (a very rare occurance). To do normal checking for failed authentications you can use the Audit subsystem. See the Security Administration guide for information on setting up and using the Audit subsystem.

Re: SIALOG

Ann,
please can you provide a new URL for the http://users.rcn.com/spiderb/sec/siaskey-readme.html
due that link is no more available.
I try to found an example to add a new customized library in the SIA configuration but the link seems to be used a different site.
Thanks

Stefano,

That link was to information supplied personally by Spider Boardman, not information supplied by HP. I'll ask around and see if I can find a current pointer to it.

There's some information at the following link. Note that this information is supplied personally by Spider Boardman, it is not HP "officially supported" documentation. Many thanks to Spider for this information.
