If something goes wrong during the installation of NAAS (Novell Advanced Audit Services), it's sometimes advisable to delete what has been created and start over again. Here are the steps to completely remove NAAS from your tree and server:
- Using ConsoleOne, delete the objects within the NAAS container. If DSEvent, NSSEvent, or FSEvent policies have been created, it will be necessary to double click on each of them, and delete the individual policies inside before you can delete the event policies themselves.
- Delete the NAAS container.
- If you have defined a user as the NAAS auditor, right click on this user in ConsoleOne, go to "Extensions of this object" and remove the "naasAuditor," and "naasGloballyAuditable extensions".
- Using the Pervasive Control Center utility, delete the NAASADMN database.
If the Pervasive Control Center has not already been installed on the workstation, install it by launching SYS:\PVSW\Clients\Win\Setup.exe and following the prompts. Then click on Start, Programs, Pervasive, Pervasive Control Center to bring up the Pervasive Control Center.
Once in the Pervasive Control Center, double click on the server running the Pervasive engine to expose the "Databases" folder. Open the "Databases" folder, and delete the NAASADMN database.
- AFTER you have deleted the database from the Pervasive Control Center (emphasize AFTER), you are ready to clean up the auditing files. By default these files are in the SYS:\_NetWare directory. Access SYS:\_NetWare by using a utility such as JCMD to simulate a DOS session on the NetWare server. JCMD.ZIP, which contains JCMD.NLM can be downloaded from http://www.netwarefiles.com/servermgmt.htm.
CD into SYS:\_Netware, and do the following:
Delete *.MKD Delete *.DDF Delete *.AUDEdit ADCONFIG.CFG on file servers that were acting as Audit Agents, and delete everything in the file except the first line. The first line should contain only the treename in the format ".
.+." also, there must be an ENTER after the treename to move to the next line. For example, if my treename were "MYTREE," the edited ADCONFIG.CFG would look like this:
.MYTREE.+.Edit SRCONFIG.CFG on the file server that was acting as the Audit Server and delete everything except the first line. The first line should contain only the treename in the format ".
.+." also, there must be an ENTER after the treename to move to the next line. For example, if my treename were "MYTREE," the edited SRCONFIG.CFG would look like this:
- Edit AUTOEXEC.NCF and delete the following entries:
- Move the ADAGTSET.NLM and ADSRVSET.NLM from SYS:\AUDIT to SYS:\SYSTEM.
