How to configure for forwarding "sudo" syslog events in user specified file?


How to configure for forwarding "sudo" events in user specified file rather than default file(Ex: /var/log/secure)?

Please help me to solve this problem.

Add an extra line to your syslog.conf:

Code:
authpriv.*                        /var/log/<your_log_file>

I don't know what you mean with "user specified file" but /etc/sudoers has an option for a different logfile. See 'man sudoers': "logfile".
