Tracking login failures

Want to write failed login attempts to a file as they occur on a V5.1 2650 alpha.

Re: Tracking login failures

You probably would want to enable auditing. It's best you refer to the Security Admin manual on how to do this.

Here's the URL to the on-line doc.s

You could try lastb -R (last command) and see if that helps. It basically gives you the timestamp, from where the connection came from.

Before configuring ACCOUNTING or audit features,

You could try first this;

#touch /var/adm/sialog
#chmod 644 /var/adm/sialog
#chown root.adm /var/adm/sialog

Then try and fails to login and have a look to sialog file.

Hope it helps,
