We do not want to use the seini tool to modify configuration files because the information output to the seaudit file is rather limited and we know that selang can achieve the same results but with more valuable output in the audit file.  An example of selang commands used to modify configuration settings are detailed below.



To make config changes (for example; in seos.ini) via the selang shell submit; 



 env config 

 er config seos.ini section(seos) token(parent_pmd) value(PMDB@REMOTEHOST)

or from a shell prompt


selang -c "env config; er config seos.ini section(seos) token(parent_pmd) value(PMDB@REMOTEHOST)"


To see the resulting output in the seaudit (in this example on a Unix box) please run


seaudit -a | grep -i UPDATE | grep -i CONFIG | grep -i seos.ini
