Installing and Upgrading to v1.0


Open-AudIT v1.0 was released in May 2013.

Please see the installation and upgrading documentation referenced on the Open-AudIT documentation home page, here.

 Caveat - make sure you update your Groups (as below) and use the new audit scripts.

 If it's a "built in" Group, delete the old Group (Admin -> Groups -> List Groups) and activate a new one (the XML definitions have been updated) Admin -> Groups -> Activate Group.

 If it's a custom Group, export it and edit the lines so they look like this (new definition):

 

<column>
<column_order>1</column_order>
<column_name>Hostname</column_name>
<column_variable>hostname</column_variable>
<column_type>link</column_type>
<column_link>/main/system_display/</column_link>
<column_secondary>system_id</column_secondary>
<column_ternary></column_ternary>
<column_align>left</column_align>
</column>

 

They originally looked like this (old definition):

 

<column>
<column_order>1</column_order>
<column_name>Hostname</column_name>
<column_variable>hostname</column_variable>
<column_type>link</column_type>
<column_link>main/system_display/</column_link>
<column_secondary>system_id</column_secondary>
<column_ternary></column_ternary>
<column_align>left</column_align>
</column>

 

Note the lack of a leading / in the column_link attribute of the old definition.
