Problem

A Forum reader recently asked:

"If you are going to use the free version of Audit and use MySQL, where is the "best" place to install the MySQL application? Can it be any server? The First (Main) file server? The Master Replica server?"

And here's the response from Jason Doering ...

Solution

Make sure it is not on a server where you plan to audit file activity. Otherwise you get a loop of noise: MySQL writes to disk, which is audited, generating a record, which is written to disk, which is audited ...

I have mine on the same server as ZENworks inventory. The Sybase and MySQL databases have been playing well together for a couple of years.
