5.1 Installing on NetWare

Novell Audit can be installed on NetWare® 6.5 SP3 or OES 1.0 SP1 (NetWare kernel).

IMPORTANT:When you install the full version of Novell Audit, the license file (*.nlf) is installed with the product and the product is automatically activated; that is, you can configure all the product channels and instrumentations.

If you install the Novell Audit Starter Pack, the product is not licensed and you have only limited functionality. If you want to upgrade to the full version, you must purchase a product license. For more information on activating the full version of Novell Audit, see Section 5.5, Activating Novell Audit.

To install Novell Audit on NetWare:

  1. On the NetWare server, insert, and if necessary, mount the Novell Audit installation CD.

  2. Load nwconfig.nlm at the server console.

  3. In NWConfig, select Product Options > Install a Product Not Listed.

  4. Press F3 (F4 if you’re using RCONSOLE) and specify the path to the directory where the installation program can find the base.ips file, which is located in the NetWare directory on the installation CD.

  5. Select your install options.

    Unlike previous versions of Novell Audit, the installation options are not specific to new or upgrade installations. For a complete first-time or upgrade installation, we recommend you select all the options.

    The installation options are outlined in the following table.



    Install Novell Audit Instrumentation Agents

    Installs the NetWare Instrumentation (auditNW.nlm) and the eDirectory™ Instrumentation (auditDS.nlm).

    These instrumentations must be installed on any NetWare server that you want to report eDirectory, file system, or NetWare events. This option automatically installs the Platform Agent, regardless of whether the Platform Agent option is selected.

    Install Novell Audit Platform Agent

    Installs the Novell Audit Platform Agent (logevent.nlm) and adds auditagt.ncf to the autoexec.ncf file.

    The Platform Agent must be installed on any NetWare server that you want to report events.

    Novell Audit Secure Logging Server

    Installs the Novell Audit Secure Logging Server (lengine.nlm), the Novell Audit Instrumentation Agents (auditNW.nlm and auditDS.nlm), the Platform Agent (logevent.nlm), the Log Parser (logparse.nlm), and adds the Novell Audit 2.0 schema extensions to eDirectory. It also adds auditsvr.ncf and auditagt.ncf to the autoexec.ncf file.

    The Secure Logging Server securely receives reported events.

    NOTE:If you want more than one Secure Logging Server in the tree, we recommend that you create separate eDirectory organizational units as containers for each Secure Logging Server’s configuration objects. For more information, see Section 7.2, Configuring Multiple Secure Logging Servers.

    Add Schema Extensions

    Adds the Novell Audit schema extensions to eDirectory.

    NOTE:If you select only this option, you are automatically exited from the installer after the eDirectory schema is extended.

  6. Press F10 to continue.

  7. Accept the License Agreement.

  8. To add the Novell Audit schema extensions, enter the user name and password of an administrator with rights to the root of the eDirectory tree. This logs you into the AuditExt utility.

    If the admin object is not in the same context as the current server, you must use the object’s fully distinguished name (for example, .Admin.Accounts.Finance.YourCo).

  9. After logging in to AuditExt, select from the following options:

    AuditExt Options


    Add Schema Extensions

    Adds the Novell Audit 2.0 schema objects.

    IMPORTANT:This does not destroy or overwrite any objects in your current eDirectory tree.

    Remove Schema Extensions

    Removes all Novell Audit schema extensions from the eDirectory tree.

    This option is required to uninstall Novell Audit.

    WARNING:This option deletes all existing Novell Audit objects from eDirectory.

    Configure This Server

    Configures the Secure Logging Server. Depending on the installation, it performs one of the following actions:

    • For a new installation, it creates the Secure Logging Server object in Logging Services, creates a File Channel object in the Logging Services Channel container, and configures the Secure Logging Server to log events to the File channel. It also creates a Monitor channel for iManager.

    • For an upgrade installation, it upgrades the Novell Audit 1.0.3 objects to the Novell Audit 2.0 schema.

    If you choose to configure the Secure Logging Server, you are prompted as follows:

    1. AuditExt automatically creates the Secure Logging Server name as “server_name Logging Server.”

    2. Choose if you want to create all Novell Audit objects in the Logging Services container.

      NOTE:Logging Services is the default container for all Novell Audit objects in eDirectory.

      If you select No, you must provide the name of an existing organizational unit in which AuditExt can create the Secure Logging Server and its associated objects.

    3. When you’re finished, press Esc, then click Yes.

    For additional configuration information, see Section 7.0, Configuring the Secure Logging Server.

    Exit AuditExt

    Closes the AuditExt utility.

  10. When finished, select Exit AuditExt, then click Yes.

  11. Choose if you want to start the Secure Logging Server now.

    If you select Yes, the installer loads the Secure Logging Server. It does not reboot the server.

    To manually load the Secure Logging Server, enter

    load lengine


    load auditsvr.ncf

    If you want to prevent the Secure Logging Server from being unloaded by users with access to the server console, you can append the -n switch to the server startup script. (For example, load lengine -n .)

  12. Choose if you want to start logging eDirectory and NetWare events now.

    If you select Yes, the installer loads the instrumentations and the Platform Agent.

    To manually start the NetWare or eDirectory Instrumentation on NetWare, enter

    load auditnw


    load auditDS

    To load both the NetWare and eDirectory Instrumentations, enter

    load auditagt.ncf

    Auditnw.nlm, audit.ds, and auditagt.ncf are located in the sys:\system directory.

  13. Press Enter to complete the installation.

  14. After you install Novell Audit, iManager 2.0 or above detects that you have a new plug-in and prompts you to install it. For instructions on installing the plug-in, see Section 6.0, Installing the Novell Audit iManager Plug-In.
