Viewing the detailed NetBackup audit report
You can see detailed NetBackup audit event information with the nbauditreport command.
To view the full audit report
- Log on to the master server.
- Enter the following command to display the audit report in the summary format.
Or, run the command with the following options.
The start date and time of the report data you want to view.
The end date and time of the report data you want to view.
The category of user action that was performed. Categories such as POLICY may contain several sub-categories such as schedules or backup selections. Any modifications to a sub-category are listed as a modification to the primary category.
See the NetBackup Commands Guide for -ctgy options.
Use to indicate the name of the user for whom you'd like to display audit information.
The -fmt DETAIL option displays a comprehensive list of audit information. For example, when a policy is changed, this view lists the name of the attribute, the old value, and the new value. This option has the following sub-options:
[-notruncate] . Display the old and new values of a changed attribute on separate lines in the details section of the report.
[-pagewidth <NNN>] . Set the page width for the details section of the report.
The -fmt PARSABLE option displays the same set of information as the DETAIL report but in a parsable format. The report uses the pipe character (|) as the parsing token between the audit report data. This option has the following sub-options:
[-order <DTU|DUT|TDU|TUD|UDT|UTD>]. Indicate the order in which the information appears.
- The audit report contains the following details:
The details of the action that was performed.
The identity of the user who performed the action.
The time that the action was performed.
The following information only displays if you use the -fmt DETAIL or the -fmt PARSABLE options.
The category of user action that was performed.
The action that was performed.
The reason that the action was performed. A reason displays if a reason was specified for the operation that created the change.
An account of all of the changes, listing the old values and the new values.
