Fix Recommendation

Ensure that an ESCON Director Application Console log is created and in use every time the system is switched on.

The ESCON Director maintains an audit trail at the ESCD console’s fixed disk. This audit trail logs the time, date, and password identification when changes have been made to the ESCON Director.

Check Contents

If the ESCON Director Console is present, verify on the ESCON Director Application Console that the Event log is in use, otherwise this check is not applicable.

If no Event log exists, this is a finding.
