    Check password usage (Novell Client for Windows 4.91)

    Hi,

    Im note sure this is the right forum, but;

    Is there a script that can be written to show who is using a certain password?

    We suspect that a normal user has found out our administrator password but cant think of a way to check.

    Alternatively, is there a DOS command that can list all users that have used a particular system password?

    Any help will be grately appreciated.

    Cheers.
    Lee

    You might try the <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> Download details: Log Parser 2.2 which enables you to query the event log file. You can also look around at Welcome to the Script Center. There are several repositories of scripts for various srcipt languages.

    If you have even the slightest suspicion that someone may know your administrator password then you should change it. Make sure the new password is sufficiently long and complex and DO NOT use any kind of pattern or sequence based on the previous password.

    Hi,

    Yeah, thats all now been done, but we could do with some evidence that the user concerned had used the password, at the moment its just suspicion.

    Cheers.

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with the Novell Client for Windows. Do you know what kind of auditing is enabled?

    Im not sure Im afraid, Im just covering for the usual engineer whose away until Monday. He'll probably be able to do the necessary.

    I was trying to see if I could find anything out in his absence. I usually deal with application development.

    Cheers.
