LOGADM

Dear experts.

I was wondering if logadm preserves ACL setuped on for instance, /var/log/authlog.

From man :
Code:
...by creating an
     empty file whose owner, group ID, and permissions match  the
     original file....

Is this ACL inclusive or i need to use -a option (run cmd after rotation) with setfacl in configuration file (which works fine, i was just wondering...)

Regards
Peasant.

Yep, filesystem keeps that for you but just in /var/log, somewhere else if you want to keep your filesystem permissions and acls you must use -p switch on cp command.

logadm rotates log every time

I'm running logadm manually to test and it seems to be rotating my /var/log/oracle/oracle_audit.log file every single time it's ran instead of rotating once it gets passed 10 gigs, any ideas? Here's the logadm.conf for reference. (0 Replies)
