How do I get a dump of all user account data for a Unix agent?

Can I view all Unix user account data together in one VM report?

NetIQ Vulnerability Manager 5.5

NetIQ Security Agent for Unix 5.5


Using the Security Check Wizard, you can create a custom security check in Vulnerability Manager that returns all user account data for a Unix agent.

To create a custom check to return all user account data:

  1. Open the Vulnerability Manager console.
  2. Expand Security Knowledge > Security Checks > My Checks.
  3. Right-click My Checks and select New Security Check to open the Security Check Wizard.
  4. Under Platform, select UNIX.
  5. In the Object window, expand Host > User.
  6. Click User and then click Next.
  7. In the Available Attributes column, CTRL-click the following attributes:

    • User Name
    • User ID
    • Primary Group ID
    • Home Directory
    • Shell
    • Local or Remote Account
    • Minimum Days before Password Change Allowed
    • Maximum Days before Password Change Allowed
    • Number of Warning Days before Password Expires
    • Last Login Time

  8. Click > to move the selected attributes to the Attributes to Check column.
  9. Click Next.
  10. Click Next again in the Filter, Parameters, and Scoring Method windows.
  11. Type a name and description for the new check in the Check Name and Brief Description fields.
  12. In the Category list, select User/Groups.
  13. Click Finish.

You can now either include the new check in a policy template or run it separately as a stand-alone check.
