    Hello I was wondering if anyone out there knows of any software that I can use to pull reports from OS 10.5 in and OD environment where it would report on items such as denied log-on, attempts to access restricted files, access to files and resources both allowed and denied ? Any help would be greatly appreciated I have googled and searched for days and I can't find anything

    I am also in need of a belarc advisor type of software for the Mac that I can use to pull serial numbers and install keys from software like MS Office for Mac.

    Thank you I know am asking much for someone new to the forum I am grateful for any help you can pass along my way

    I believe Apple Remote Desktop can do all of those things. I don't know if you can pull reports from Windows boxes, but you can for Macs.

    Sorry, I am not aware of any tools that can do that at all much less reliably. I know of some windows tools that do that, but I have found them to be inconsistent and incomplete on what they report.

    There is something for enterprise software asset tracking
    (not exactly called that) for Macs.

    Be nice to have something besides the log files... which can get rather GIGANTIC. Nothing like opening a 25MB word file.

    Install MacPorts, then use it to install logwatch?

    logwatch @7.3.6, Revision 1 (security)

    Description: Logwatch is a customizable log analysis system. Logwatch
    parses through your system's logs for a given period of
    time and creates a report analyzing areas that you
    specify, in as much detail as you require. Logwatch is
    easy to use and will work right out of the package on most
    systems.
