fix

To monitor the use of the uroot account, you can specify that uroot send an email message to the root user every time that uroot is used.  Enable the mail_always keyword to configure this function.

To enable the mail_always function for uroot:

  1. Use a text editor to load the /etc/uroot.cfg file.

  2. Type the following text near the top of the file, preferably after the lines that start with a #:

  3. Defaults:ALL mail_always

  4. Save and close the file.



note

By default, uroot logs only to a file.
