Many services and processes running in a domain document their activities fully automatically in the background. The log files contain information about users’ logins to the system, installation and uninstallation of software, access to web pages, error messages and other information. Univention Corporate Server (UCS) also creates such reports – either behind the scenes in the form of log files or by using the UCS Admin Diary. You can also obtain ready-made reports as CSV or PDF files via the Univention Management Console or Shell.
In this article, I would like to show you how to create audit-proof log files of the LDAP directory service with Univention Directory Logger. I’d also like to tell you how to obtain a complete overview of the operations in a UCS domain with Admin Diary and how you can evaluate data from the directory service with Univention Directory Reports.
