FAQ
Hi,
I want to enable simple auditing on my database.
I have started with audit_trail = OS, but the audit directory in
ORACLE_HOME/rdbms is not created.
I have run the cataudit.sql.
I know that oracle does basic auditing and puts them in rdbms/audit folder.
This is windows on 9i. Any idea ???

    I believe on Windows the default OS audit trail is the Windows Event Viewer.

    I also did an audit table but as I have put AUDIT_TRAIL = OS, it should go
    somewhere.
    Somewhre.. but where??? I have manually created audit folder in rdbms.
    still no file is generated.

    If the directory isn't already there, you can just create it. On my systems, I set the init.ora parameter
    audit_file_dest to a directory like $ORACLE_BASE/admin/SID/audit. On 10, I've noticed that the
    default is $ORACLE_BASE/admin/SID/adump, so that might be a good place to start.


    I have audit_trail = DB on my systems, and then the audit records are in a SQL-queryable table called
    SYS.AUD$. There are a bunch of predefined views of this table (like DBA_AUDIT_TRAIL) that make it very easy to query.


    Cheers,
    Mike
