Error description

  • Problem Description:
    
    When using DB2 Audit facility, all events in the AUDIT category
    have the "USERID" and "AUTHID" recorded as the user ID of the
    instance owner regardless of the real user ID that called
    db2audit.
    
    For example, your instance owner was "DB2INST1" and you logged
    into the system using another account "USER1" and then issued
    some Audit administration commands like:
    -- db2audit configure
    -- db2audit start
    -- db2audit stop
    The audit facility will log the "USERID" and "AUTHID" which
    called those events as "DB2INST1" while the expected id is
    "USER1".
