Re: Syslog is not updating properly

do you mean the tty??

this is usually due to doing su while you are not on a tty, like
ssh toto@titi su applcln

or ssh -n or remsh,

Re: Syslog is not updating properly

Hi,
check in your /etc/syslog.conf what facility and level have to log in the syslog.log.

By default you have this:
*.info;mail.none /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

Regards.
