Re: login incorrect

/var/adm/btmp stores the bad login informations.

And you can find this information to syslog also, if its configured.

Hi,
>>how can i have find from which hostname or ip wrongly type the passwd the particular user id


used "lastb -R "
-R When used with last and lastb, -R displays the user's host name as it is stored in files /etc/wtmp and /etc/btmp respectively. The host name is displayed between the tty name and the user's login time.

For more information see the man page of lastb

Hi Rajesh,

Use lastb -R or have a look at the file
/var/adm/bad_logins.log

Re: login incorrect

Dear Rajesh

by default failed logins are written to /var/adm/btmp file and may be read with the lastb command.

thanks and regards
