Hi, I am new to an old Netware 5.0 server.
Are logins audited/logged in Netware 5.0, and if so where can I view this info?
TIA

They can be, if you turn on accounting.  I've never done it, myself, but it can be done.  I've never been in a situation that required that type of audit trail.

Maybe someone else here has.

Well, the user's last login date/time are recorded in the user's object, by default. As ShineOn has indicated, you can go a step further and turn on Auditing. Correctly using auditing is a non-trivial task, so you need to read up on it at --> http://www.novell.com/documentation/nw51/auditenu/data/a2q3x2v.html

Note that's the documention for NetWare v5.1, the oldest still-supported version. NetWare v5.0 was EOLed a year or so ago, and is no longer supported. The latest version of NetWare is v6.5.

I believe the auditing trail is in the BTRIEVE database on the SYS: volume...

Do the newer versions still use BTrieve or am I hoping for too much when I ask if they're using MySQL in the v6.5 version?

I never used it in 6.5 - I guess one would have to check the docs on that:

I believe it uses Nsure Audit since it's included in NW6.5:
