Environment

Novell Audit 1.0.3 Secure Logging Server
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 5

Situation

After upgrading to NetWare 6.5 SP5 (OES SP2), the Secure Logging Server debug screen no longer came up.
LENGINE.NLM is loaded and events are getting stored in MySQL.
There is no Secure Logging Server screen showing the debug output since upgrading my support pack.

Resolution

Go to SYS:SYSTEM\AUDITSVR.NCF and do the following:
Change the line that says "LOAD LENGINE" to:
LOAD LENGINE -d
By default, the Secure Logging Server (SLS) will not load the debug screen.  Only if you have a -d will the debug screen load.  The installation of the support pack may have replaced SYS:SYSTEM\AUDITSVR.NCF.  The default AUDITSVR.NCF file does not contain a -d to have the debug screen show up.
In order to get the debug screen to show up, you will need to unload the SLS and reload it.  Please do the following steps to unload and reload the SLS:
AUDITSTP.NCF     (This stops the instrumentation, such as AUDITNW.NLM and AUDITDS.NLM.)
UNLOAD LENGINE     (This stops the SLS)
AUDITSVR.NCF       (This will load the SLS.  If the -d parameter is present in the NCF, the debug screen will show up.  If not, then please edit SYS:SYSTEM\AUDITSVR.NCF.)
AUDITAGT.NCF     (This will load the instrumentation.  This is the opposite of AUDITSTP.NCF.)

Additional Information

If you installed Novell Audit from CD media, your AUDITSVR.NCF file may be marked as a read-only file.  To change the file from read-only, do the following:
1.)  Map a drive to SYS:SYSTEM of the file server running your SLS.
2.)  Right click on auditsvr.ncf and select"Properties".
3.)  At the bottom of the "Properties" page you will see an "Attributes" section.  If you see a check next to"Read-only", just uncheck it and click on the "OK" button to make your changes.
4.)  Optional:  You can repeat steps 2 - 3 to verify that the "Read-only" attribute has been unchecked.
