Dear all,

I have an dns server using PowerDNS and PowerAdmin-2.1.5

My system works great until one day, someone of my team logged in
PowerAdmin GUI website and change some PDNS record (all member of my team
had right to log-in & modify any record) So, that's the problem, i want to
audit what username logged in & what they do after logged-in. I found that
the latest version of poweradmin can help me to logging the success & fail
log in.

After some configuration & updating poweradmin version form 2.1.5 to 2.1.6,
in my /var/log/messages start to log user authenticated of powerdns.

For example: *

*Jan 21 11:45:19 localhost poweradmin: Successful authentication attempt
from [x.x.x.x] for user 'XXX'

*Jan 21 11:45:44 localhost poweradmin: Failed authentication attempt from
[x.x.x.x] for user 'YYY'*


So now, i want to save these information into a separate file (not in
/var/log/messages) And can you show me how to log what user do after logged
in (such as change record, add zone ... more detail more great)

Thank you so much !

Vinh Ho
