Installing InTrust Plug-in Components

InTrust Plug-in for Privilege Manager > Installing InTrust Plug-in Components

To configure InTrust for Privilege Manager you must install and configure several components separately. The diagram below shows the major components for the InTrust for Active Directory Plug-in.

Figure 14: InTrust Plug-in Components

To install and configure the InTrust for Active Directory Plug-in Components

  1. Install Privilege Manager and identify which logs you wish to audit.
  2. Install and configure the script to run as the root user to extract the relevant data.

    Quest recommends that you set up a daily cron job to run “pmrun” as the pmpolicy service user.

  3. Install an InTrust Agent on the Privilege Manager Policy Server.
  4. Configure the InTrust Server: Finding, Gathering, and Storing.
  5. Gather Data.
  6. Configure the InTrust Server: Reporting.

InTrust Plug-in Installation Prerequisites

InTrust Plug-in for Privilege Manager > InTrust Plug-in Installation Prerequisites

Before you install the InTrust for Active Directory components:

  • Install and register an InTrust agent on the Privilege Manager policy server machine for the collection of syslog messages.

    (For more information on this process, please refer to the document entitled InTrust Preparing for Auditing and Monitoring Linux.)

Configuring the Policy Server for the InTrust Plug-in

InTrust Plug-in for Privilege Manager > Configuring the Policy Server for the InTrust Plug-in

Run the script as the root user.

NOTE: You might need to edit to ensure it can find all relevant event log files.

The script outputs event log data in a format that the InTrust Agent can handle. When the script runs, it creates a separate file for InTrust called /tmp/pm_evlog.intrust containing a plain text version of the events stored in the event log files.

To configure the policy server for the InTrust Plugin

  1. Extract the pmintrust.tgz archive, located in the utilities directory of the Privilege Manager for Unix distribution media, to the /tmp directory.
    # gzip –dc pmintrust.tgz | tar xvf - –C /tmp 
  2. Copy the script to the /opt/quest/sbin directory of your policy server.
    # cp /tmp/pmintrust/ /opt/quest/sbin
  3. If necessary, edit the script and modify the EVDIRS and EVGLOB variables so that the script can locate the necessary event log files. For example, if your policy defines the eventlog variable as:

    Change the EVDIRS and EVGLOB variables in the script to:

    EVDIRS=`find /var/log/eventlogs –type d` 
  4. Configure the system to run the script as the root user.

    Quest recommends that you add a crontab entry as the pmpolicy service user, and configure the cronjob to run pmrun with root user privileges.

    NOTE: The crontab entry is a file called pmpolicy.crontab in the pmintrust.tgz archive.

    1. The following crontab entry runs pmrun at 10:50 pm everyday:

      50 22 * * * /opt/quest/bin/pmrun /opt/quest/sbin/

      To add the crontab, login (or su) to the pmpolicy service account and execute the following command:

      $ crontab /tmp/pmintrust/pmpolicy.crontab

      Alternatively, you can configure the script to run directly as the root user by creating a root cron job, and skip part b) of this step.

      NOTE: There is a root.cronjob file in the pmintrust.tgz archive.

    2. If you are using the default profile-based policy, add the pmintrust.profile to your policy to allow the pmpolicy service account to run the script as the root user.

      To checkout, add, and commit the changes to the policy, run the following pmpolicy command:

      # /opt/quest/sbin/pmpolicy checkout –d /tmp 
      # cp /tmp/pmintrust/pmintrust.profile /tmp/policy_pmpolicy/profiles/ 
      # chown pmpolicy:pmpolicy /tmp/policy_pmpolicy/profiles/pmintrust.profile 
      # /opt/quest/sbin/pmpolicy add –p profiles/pmintrust.profile –d /tmp 
      # /opt/quest/sbin/pmpolicy commit –d /tmp –l ″add pmintrust profile″
  5. Execute a new command with Privilege Manager to verify the change, such as:
    # pmrun id
  6. Allow the cronjob to execute at the scheduled time, then verify the InTrust event log file, /tmp/pm_evlog.intrust, was created and contains your test event.

Installing the InTrust Knowledge Pack

InTrust Plug-in for Privilege Manager > Installing the InTrust Knowledge Pack

To install the InTrust Knowledge Pack

  1. Using a InTrust for Active Directory Administration account, login to your InTrust for Active Directory server.
  2. Extract the Privilege_Manager_InTrust_<version>.zip file to a temporary folder, such as, d:\temp.
  3. Open a command prompt and change to the following directory:
  4. Import each of the XML files using the InTrustPDOImport.exe command, as following:
    # InTrustPDOImport.exe -import D:\temp\PM_DataSource.xml 
    # InTrustPDOImport.exe -import D:\temp\PM_GatheringJob.xml 
    # InTrustPDOImport.exe -import D:\temp\PM_GatheringJob_igtc.xml 
    # InTrustPDOImport.exe -import D:\temp\PM_GatheringPolicy.xml 
    # InTrustPDOImport.exe -import D:\temp\PM_GatheringTask.xml 
    # InTrustPDOImport.exe -import D:\temp\PM_Site.xml
  5. Verify the Privilege Manager objects are in the InTrust Manager, under Sites:
