RE: Path ignored but syscall event still logged



Hi All,
Sorry to bug you but is this issue I'm having a bug or have I made a mistake in the rules? Is there another way I could exclude this directory from auditd?
We have licenses for these servers so I could open a case if need be.
Many thanks,
Max

Any update on this Steve? The other ignore rules seem to work, just not that one.
Thanks,
Max

Initial assessment, the kernel patch that discards events might only work on open(2). Eric is looking to see if this can be safely broadened.
