VCLD-67-000005 - VAMI must generate log records for system startup and shutdown.

Details

Logging must be started as soon as possible when a service starts and when a service is stopped. Many forms of suspicious actions can be detected by analyzing logs for unexpected service starts and stops. Also, by starting to log immediately after a service starts, it becomes more difficult for suspicious activity to go unlogged.


Solution

Navigate to and open /opt/vmware/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf.

Add or reconfigure the following value:

server.errorlog = '/opt/vmware/var/log/lighttpd/error.log'
