   Login _how_?  At a terminal connected to a serial port?  Telnet?
RSH/REMSH?  SSH?

   If you're connecting through a network, then a forum or Web search
for keywords like, say:
    slow telnet
or
    slow ssh
should find many old discussions of the usual causes.

# ssh -vvv <servername>

Check the /var/adm/wtmp and /var/adm/wtmps files. IF it is huge in size. Move the file and re-create the file.

 

Now retry the ssh login.

Re: Too much time taken while login

/var/adm/wtmps file size is too large. Jus one more query i have
if i try cat /dev/null > /var/adm/wtmps it will clear d wtmps file. does this command corrupt the wtmps file?

Re: Too much time taken while login

Take a copy of the existing wtmps file and run the below command to empty the file. 

# cat /dev/null > /var/adm/wtmps 

This command empties the file and  doesnt corrupt the wtmps file. 

 

Alternatively you also delete and recreate this file.
