Want to track all activity of a user

We are running Tru64 cluster server and we are in need to give access to a third party user. We want to track all his activity while he is logged on the server.
Docs on audit_setup and other auditing tools has confused me more.
I may not require full server auditing, process auditing.
We are running Tru64 V5.1B with PK6.

Re: Want to track all activity of a user

Probably, GNU screen may help you with this. You can whatch and log what he is doing on the terminal.

Re: Want to track all activity of a user

If you're running Enhanced Security, you can do "per user" auditing for a specific user. Briefly, the way to do this is to enable auditing (with sysman auditconfig) and then run dxaccounts and double-click the username. Select "security options" when modifying the user configuration. In the pulldown menu, select "audit events". Choose the events that you wish to audit for the user, and success or failure for those events, such as login/logout. Click OK for that user.

Yes, you can use 'sysman' to enable Enhanced Security on the system. But it requires a reboot.
