Starting the intrusion detection system
You need to start the intrusion detection system (IDS) before you can monitor your system for intrusions and extrusions.
Prerequisite: You must have *ALLOBJ and *IOSYSCFG special authority to be able to start IDS.
The QAUDLVL system value must include the *ATNEVT option to enable auditing for intrusions. IBM® Navigator for i automatically tries to update this value when starting. If it fails to update the value, IDS fails to start.
Starting IDS in IBM Navigator for i
To start IDS in IBM Navigator for i, perform these steps:
- Expand .
- Click Manage Intrusion Detection to display the Intrusion Detection System Setup page.
- Click Start on the Intrusion Detection System Setup page.
- Click OK to save the status change.
The Intrusion detection notification status is refreshed to show that IDS is started, and auditing for intrusions is enabled.
