I want to track all the su/root activities.
If I set to the syslog.conf *emerg, *alert,*crit,*err,*warning,*notice,*info and *debug I will be ok?

Hi,

there is a dedicated log for "su" under Solaris:

/var/log/sulog

No need for syslog.

Just su.

To track all activity you'll have to set up auditing.
Syslog will not help here.
