Fix Recommendation

Set the "space_left_action" parameter to the valid setting "SYSLOG", by running the following command:

# sed -i "/^[^#]*space_left_action/ c\admin_space_left_action = SYSLOG" /etc/audit/auditd.conf

Restart the audit service:

# service auditd restart

Check Contents

Check "/etc/audit/auditd.conf" file for the "space_left_action" parameter with the following command:

# cat /etc/audit/auditd.conf | grep space_left_action

If the "space_left_action" parameter is missing, set to "ignore", set to "suspend", set to "single", set to "halt", or is blank, this is a finding

Expected Result:

space_left_action = SYSLOG

Notes:
If the "space_left_action" parameter is set to "exec" the system executes a designated script.

If this script informs the SA of the event, this is not a finding.

If the "space_left_action" parameter is set to "email" and the "action_mail_acct" parameter is not set to the email address of the system administrator, this is a finding.

The "action_mail_acct" parameter, if missing, defaults to "root". Note that if the email address of the system administrator is on a remote system "sendmail" must be available.
