Re: ausearch & aureport fail from cron



Steve,

Thank you for the reply. I appreciate your time. There was some weird
line wrap on my 3 examples, but I did try that in my second example. I
would not have posted for help if I hadn't exhausted all other attempts.

regards,
Dean


/sbin/ausearch -if /var/log/audit/audit.log  -ts 05/29/2012 00:00:00 -te 05/29/2012 23:59:59 > somefile.txt 

/sbin/ausearch --input-logs -ts 05/29/2012 00:00:00 -te 05/29/2012 23:59:59 > somefile.txt 

cat /var/log/audit/audit.log | /sbin/ausearch -ts 05/29/2012 00:00:00 -te 05/29/2012 23:59:59 > somefile.txt
