I'm searching for COMPREHENSIVE ID management security guideline to manage user administration in my current job. I couldn't find it online or the books that could help.

  2. How user should be managed.
  3. How the standard user policies should be.
  4. How to manage and check sudo logs.
  5. All about root id management.
  6. and many more that I'm suppose to know for ID management Security in corporate companies.

Please help. I really need this badly to set a standard policies and monitoring for my new project for Linux, AIX, SunOS and HP UX servers. We have about 10 000 servers which I need to standardize.

volmgt_running - return whether or not volume management is running SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lvolmgt [ library ... ] #include <volmgt.h> int volmgt_running(void); DESCRIPTION
This function is obsolete. The management of removable media by the Volume Management feature, including vold, has been replaced by soft- ware that supports the Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). Programmatic support for HAL is through the HAL APIs, which are documented on the HAL web site. See hal(5). volmgt_running() tells whether or not Volume Management is running. RETURN VALUES
volmgt_running() always returns 0 indicating Volume Management (as implemented by vold) is not running. ERRORS
volmgt_running() will fail, returning 0, if a stat(2) or open(2) of /dev/volctl fails, or if any of the following is true: ENXIO Volume Management is not running. EINTR An interrupt signal was detected while checking to see if Volume Management was running. EXAMPLES
Example 1 Using volmgt_running() To see if Volume Management is running: if (volmgt_running() != 0) { (void) printf("Volume Management is running "); } else { (void) printf("Volume Management is NOT running "); } ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |MT-Level |MT-Safe | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |Obsolete | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
cc(1B), open(2), stat(2), volmgt_check(3VOLMGT), volmgt_inuse(3VOLMGT), attributes(5), hal(5) NOTES
