For maintenance purposes, sometimes a site wants to prevent events from being audited.
Before You Begin
You must assume the root role. For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .
For example, events 26 and 27 belong to the pm class.
## audit_event file ... 25:AUE_VFORK:vfork(2):ps 26:AUE_SETGROUPS:setgroups(2):pm 27:AUE_SETPGRP:setpgrp(2):pm 28:AUE_SWAPON:swapon(2):no ...
Change these events to the no class.
## audit_event file ... 25:AUE_VFORK:vfork(2):ps 26:AUE_SETGROUPS:setgroups(2):no 27:AUE_SETPGRP:setpgrp(2):no 28:AUE_SWAPON:swapon(2):no ...
If the pm class is currently being audited, existing sessions will still audit events 26 and 27. To stop these events from being audited, you must update the users' preselection masks by following the instructions in How to Update the Preselection Mask of Logged In Users.
Caution - Never comment out events in the audit_event file. This file is used by the praudit command to read binary audit files. Archived audit files might contain events that are listed in the file.
# auditconfig -conf Configured 283 kernel events.
