How to capture mount event in /var/log/audit/audit.log



Hi Linda

Thanks for the response,
>> $ mount /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom
>> mount: only root can do that

$ strace mount
shows a few lines plus the following:
 open("/etc/mtab", O_RDWR|O_CREAT|O_LARGEFILE, 0644) = -1 EACCES
(Permission denied)

Then the root window  that has tail -f /var/log/audit/audit.log
does capture unsuccessful mount with exit=-13

I need /var/log/audit/audit.log to be able to capture the mount event
automatically  without strace intervention.

Hi Everyone,

 in RHEL 5.5    kernel  2.6.18-194.el5         audit-1.7.17-3.el5

Have the following in the /etc/audit/audit.rules
## non-privilege users using mount command.
 -a exit,always -F arch=b32 -S mount -F auid>=500 -F auid!=4294967295 -k export
-a exit,always -F arch=b64 -S mount -F auid>=500 -F auid!=4294967295 -k export

from a general user account

$ mount /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom
mount: only root can do that

but /var/log/audit/audit.log   does not capture this event

Any input is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Betty
