Checking the status of the UNIX agent

After you install and enable auditing for a UNIX computer, you can check the status of the agent using the dainfo command to verify the connection to the correct installation. For example, the agent might not automatically connect to the installation if you use an installation name other than DefaultInstallation.

To check the status of the agent and the auditing infrastructure, run the following command as a user with root privileges:

dainfo --diag

The --diag option returns detailed information about the local computer and about the installations, audit stores, trusted collectors, trusted agents, and the active audit store database that the agent is sending its data to. The diagnostic output also includes details about the Active Directory location and object identifier for each installation.
