OL08-00-030660 - OL 8 must allocate audit record storage capacity to store at least one week of audit records when audit records are not immediately sent to a central audit record storage facility.

Information

To ensure OL 8 systems have a sufficient storage capacity in which to write the audit logs, OL 8 needs to be able to allocate audit record storage capacity.

The task of allocating audit record storage capacity is usually performed during initial installation of OL 8.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.

Solution

Allocate enough storage capacity for at least one week of audit records when audit records are not immediately sent to a central audit record storage facility.

If audit records are stored on a partition made specifically for audit records, use the 'X' program to resize the partition with sufficient space to contain one week of audit records.

If audit records are not stored on a partition made specifically for audit records, a new partition with sufficient space will need be to be created.
