Root User Access Report

by Mar 20, 2009


This is the first time I've posted in this forum. So, please bear with me…

We've had uptime installed on our IBM production server, running AIX, for a couple of years now. I generate daily reports re: cpu usage, memory usage, etc. I've gotten a lot of good info from uptime.

I've been asked to generate a report of root user access for a security audit this June. Only 3 people have access to root…only 3 people (including myself) have the root access on our production server. What this report would display is when, and how often, root is accessed each month.

I know of the graph on uptime for login history for various users…including root….on the server. But I'd like something more detailed, if possible.

Can someone help?

Thanks in advance!
