1. I know several posts have been made on this subject but I am having real trouble getting sudo to log through syslog.
I have the following entry in my syslog.conf:
I have restarted the syslogd daemon and have since restarted the server. Should the syslogd restart automatically as it is not in the list of processes?
I have also created the /var/log/sudo file and despite using sudo with no problems nothing is showing in /var/log/sudo?
Is there something else I am missing out?
2. Another question which is slightly unrelated..
Once authenticating successfully when using sudo does sudo/machine cache the password as when I do a command requiring sudo straight after it does not ask me for a password?
