Use of sudo    

Started by  Unix-dude
I'm a consultant, with background as a Unix administrator. My team is doing a security review for a client and looking at a Lawson installation on AIX. My client makes heavy use of sudo, a tool that doles out root privileges to specific users. Looking at the sudo logs, this is what I see dozens of instances of Lawson users executing 'sudo su -', effectively becoming root complete with a hash prompt, creating users with the 'useradd' command even though the system uses LDAP authentication work...

MA60: Who owns it?    

Started by  TerriS
I think it's a simple question. Currently, AP monitors our MA60 screen, but MM wants it. I'm just curious .... Who monitors the MA60 screen at your place of business

Command Line Access    

Started by  Deleted User
We want to better secure the command line access to our lawson server. We tried to turn on the server windows firewall (server 2008)....but that blocks all LID access. We would like to create a rule in the firewall to allow certain admin users or their pc 's that will allow the LID exe to run (univwin64.exe) Does anyone know how to do this. OR what other solutions can I implement, for SOX compliance - to show that only admins have LID Command line access

Lawson Admin Segregation of Duties    

Started by  Deleted User
We're being pressured by auditors about breaking up into two the Lawson Admin who puts something (mod/CTP/Env Patch) into our Test environment and the Admin who puts it into Production. Our practice has been: 1. Dick puts quarterly patches into test; Harry puts environment patches into test. (user testing occurs) 2. Dick then puts quarterly patches into prod; Harry puts environment patches into prod. (All Lawson Admins have keys to test and prod e.g. the lawson password.) Auditors woul...

File Change log - Windows    

Started by  Deleted User
We are being asked to provider a summary of Lawson files that are changed and/or updated. I believe audit concerns are when a program code is changed due to a patch...or a user changing the source code. Do you know of any software that would monitor these changes

Using a generic userid for processing    

Started by  John Henley
I wanted to poll the community and see how clients who are subject to SOx are dealing with daily/monthly processing. In various organizations I have consulted with, the daily/monthly scheduled jobs are usually run using a general userid, rather than being tied to a specific user. The advantage is that, given normal turnover, the jobs do go away when the employee terminates. In addition, the jobs / reports are accessible to a generic userid in the print manager, etc. This disadvantage is that,...

Where and what objects to look for to review program changes - directory and file permissions in Unix    

Started by  lidersuper
I am auditing IT general controls for a Lawson GL application. I have normally looked at PD, WS, SCR, RPT, and PGM file extensions under the PROD and SYSTEM Unix diretories to review the population of program changes during a fiscal year. 1. Should I also be looking at other file extensions (.xml, .gnt ..) and other directories to identify production objects that have been modified and that could change the way the application performs calculations or reports 2. Most of the files in the ...

Extracting a list of Lawson user IDs    

Started by  Deleted User
How can I extract a list of users from Lawson Better yet, does anyone know the name of the table that stores the user information (username, user's Security Class, active/inactive, etc.) This client does not have Monarch, so I'm hoping I can have their DBA run a query in Oracle if there is no easy way to do it straight from the app itself. Thanks-

Screen Names    

Started by  k-rock
Does anybody have a way to get a listing of screen names I grabbed the data dictionary here and that was great for the 'program code', but I am looking for the more specific names of each form. For example: GL20 in the data dictionary is 'Accounting Units', but GL20.1 is 'Accounting Units-Account'. That second name is the one I am looking for now.
