Auditing DBA Role

Hi,
I m working on Oracle Database auditing. In our organization there are more than one database administrators all having DBA role. Is it possible to enable auditing on DBA role whenever any of the Database administrator loged in and use the privileges under DBA role? If not, should I have to enable privilege auditing on all privileges of DBA role access by all database administrators??
 
Kindly give the solution.
 
thanks
 
Warm Regards

A predefined role, named "DBA", is automatically created with every Oracle database. This role contains all database system privileges. Therefore, it is very powerful and should be granted only to fully functional database administrators.

Oracle Security is easier if you design for it

Hi Alan,
 
Whilst your advice is good, you didn't answer the question.
 
SQL> audit dba by access;
 
Audit succeeded.
 
SQL>  
 
You can use database audit on some core builtins such as the DBA role, connect, etc
 
cheers
