Converts pre-AIX Version 4 format audit bins to AIX Version 4 format.
auditconv OldFile NewFile
The auditconv command converts audit records which were generated by previous versions of the operating system into the format used by AIX Version 4 and higher of the operating system.
Audit records are read from the file OldFile, and written to the file NewFile. Each audit record is updated with thread information, with a default thread identifier of zero.
Access Control: This command should grant execute (x) access to the root user and members of the audit group. The command should be setuid to the root user and have the trusted computing base attribute.
