My company is exploring change/config management options and so far the only solution we have found to be good is Tripwire. Of course this software costs an arm and a leg. I've been asked to explore the option of using syslog in linux, grepping to a txt or db file, and then using Crystal Reports to extract data. Things we will be logging are permissions changes, ad account creations, folder access, etc. Can this be done?
