Audit changes made ​​by users

Hi to all,
Could tell me how to audit changes of users on jobs, media, etc.

I am using DP 6.11 over HP-UX
Best regards

I'm wondering the same thing. I've been looking for DP 6.2 and so far I'm not finding anything that allows for this.

Never mind. I'm a noob. Under Reporting context and Event Log I can see htat Normal level events display the changes I'm looking for. Now I'm looking to see how to set retentions and exports of these events.

Please check if the following options in the global configuration file help you regarding auditing funcationality. It has been integrated in version 6.11, if I remember correctly.


# default: 0
# This option enables (1) or disables (0) logging of GUI-related user actions
# into the Data Protector event log. Logging is disabled by
# default.
# EnableCommonKeyEntity
# format:
# EnableCommonKeyEntity=<0 or 1>
# default: 0
# If this option is set (=1), KeyEntity value will be used as an entity name.
# for encryption.
# KeyEntity
# format:
# KeyEntity=<Entity Name>
# default: <empty>
# This value will be used as an entity-name if EnableCommonKeyEntity is set to 1.


# default: 0
# This option enables or disables the logging of auditing
# information. By default, the auditing information is not logged.
# If the value is set to 1, the auditing information is logged.


# default: 60
# Specifies how long (number of months) audit log files are kept
# before being purged. Audit logs are purged on a monthly
# basis, meaning that the session information for an entire month
# is removed after the specified number of months.
# By default, the audit log is retained for 5 years (60 months).
# If the value is set to 0, audit log purging is disabled.
