Hi,

I need to set-up auditing on all our AIX servers and I want to edit all users with selected classes. how do I set it on the /etc/security/audit/config?

Will this work? (example)
users:
             ALL = general, objects

Regards

You have to add the users using the chuser command. It's more convenient to script this than doing it manually though. To get a list of current accounts type:

lsuser -c -a id home ALL | sed '/^#.*/d' | tr ':' '\011' | awk '{print$1}' | sort

However you can make default classes for new users. Add the audit class to the /usr/lib/security/mkuser.default file, so new users automatically have the right audit call associated.

user:
    auditclasses =
    pgrp =
    groups =
    shell = /usr/bin/ksh
    home = /home/$USER
