We run a nightly report using DSPAUDJRNE ENTTYP(PW). This report has
ballooned to hundreds of pages because of one user id.

VIOLATION USER USER DEVICE REMOTE LOCAL NETWORK JOB

NAME USER
PW Q QTCP MATTHEW QTVDEVICE QTCP

PW Q QTCP MATTHEW QTVDEVICE QTCP


I've spoken with the user and he is unaware of these attempts. The times

show that they occur at 2 minute intervals. I suspect that the user was
signed in on a 5250 emulation session with reconnect enabled, changed his

password on another session/terminal, and now the original device keeps
retrying with an old password.

Is there a way to track down the IP address of these attempts, or even
the
workstation id that it is using? I've looked at the job log for
QTVDEVICE. It doesn't seem to give any info that would help me track
down
the origin. The sign on server doesn't show any entries in the job log
and I can't seem to hit a decent search pattern on either Midrange.com or

Google.

The information you are looking for it in the security audit journal. The
reason you are not seeing it is that DSPAUDJRNE does not show it to you.
DSPAUDJRNE is old and no longer being enhanced. Perhaps I was wrong to
argue against deleting this command a few years ago. People still use it
and as a result miss some auditing information.

If your system is at V5R4 you should use the new CPYAUDJRNE command instead
of DSPAUDJRNE. Once the file has been created use your favorite query to
select and print the fields you are interested in. The IP address from
where the request originated should be in the header section of each *TYPE5
audit record.

If you are on an earlier release you should first use CRTDUPOBJ
OBJ(QASYPWJ5) FROMLIB(QSYS) OBJTYPE(*FILE) TOLIB(QTEMP) to create a
physical file in QTEMP and then use DSPJRN with OUTFILFMT(*TYPE5) to copy
the PW audit records to that file. The remaining steps to display the data
will be the same as for V5R4.
