The Cisco ISE must initiate session auditing upon startup.
If auditing is enabled late in the startup process, the actions of some start-up processes may not be audited. Some audit systems also maintain state information only available if auditing is enabled before a given process is created.
Verify logging is initiated upon system startup. Since the production may not be able to be manually started to observe this, review the logging categories setup.
From the Web Admin portal: 1. Choose Administration >> System >> Logging >> Logging Categories. 2. Verify the Administrative and Operational Audit is configured for the INFO log severity level. 3. Verify that logging categories have been configured and have been set to the syslog target.
If logging categories are not configured to send to the central syslog server, this is a finding.
