You have installed a new Oracle12c database and want to enable auditing of SYSDBA (as per Oracle11g) but get the following error:

SQL> audit sysdba by access;
audit sysdba by access
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-28019: audit cannot be configured on administrative privileges

What is the equivalent command in Oracle12c ?
