/var/adm/csalog file

Hello -

I'm looking for some sort of definitive answer to a dilema I am facing, which is whether the csalog generated on UNIX boxes by syslogd is actually needed for audit purposes or should the log files kept on the CSAMC be deemed authotitative?

I have some Unix SA's that are rotating the /var/adm/csalog files based on the syslog.conf file and they are changing the permissions of the csalog file which of course is triggering alerts.

Are these files redundant? Can I definitively say that any log file information I would need to satisfy an audit requirement could be found on the CSA MC?
