You would need a AAA server with authentication and accounting setup to
capture who did what and when. Cisco makes the ACS which is very good at
AAA, but also expensive, an alternative is a Unix based Tacacs program
that also does accounting.  There is one I have used in the past before
implementing a full ACS, it is called tac_plus with Web_UI. You can find
it here, http://www.networkforums.net/  It has a built in web front to
administer the accounts and logs. It uses MySQL. With this you can
search the logs to see who made changes that correlate to the Rancid

Subject: [rancid] Who made changes?


Hi all,

I installed Rancid in combination with FreeBSD CVSWeb on a Debian
server. Everything is working, great!

There is only one thing I want to know: is it possible to show who made
the changes in telnet? At this moment the webpage is telling me that the
unix user (who runned Rancid) has made the changes. For example, I have
more telnet accounts. One for Paul and one for Peter. If Paul made one
change, and Peter made two changes, I want that the webpage is telling
me exactly who made a change.  

Any hints or keywords would be really appreciated. Thanks!
