loging trace

With Radhat 9, how can I know who was connected onto the
system, who has change his ID with "su".
How to oblige every body to connect with one's user first
before doing "su" to become root.
Thanks for help in advance.

I am not sure how the log setup is in RedHat 9, so I'll leave somebody else to comment on that, but as far as making people log in as themselves first.. I recommend not allowing root login in sshd by setting "PermitRootLogin no" in your sshd_config file (usually found in /etc/ssh/).

I also recommend you disable peoples ability to use su, and make them use sudo as well. This way to can give them partial root access if they need it, and they never need to know your real root users password.
