Environment

Novell eDirectory 8.8.6 for Linux

Situation

Attempting to configure eDirectory XDAS Audit to File, but no events are being written to
/var/opt/novell/eDirectory/log/xdas-events.log

Resolution

eDirectory 8.8.6 is able to log events to a rolling log file or syslog server, as documented in the Novell XDASv2 Administration Guide:

https://www.novell.com/documentation/edir88/edirxdas_admin/data/bqppr1q.html

In the nds.conf file, there is a specific setting to configure the location of the xdasconfig.properties file.  By default, this line is:

n4u.server.xdas-conf=/etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/xdasconfig.properties

If xdasconfig.properties exists in more than one location, the file listed in the nds.conf is the one which must  be modified.  Upon editing the proper file, as configured in nds.conf, the XDAS Audit to File works correctly.
