Re: "Found 'NOTICE' in syslog file!"

>smatador: grep -e "err|notice|warn" syslog.log

The proper option for the egrep hammer is -E.
Or just using regular grep:
grep -i -e err -e notice -e warn syslog.log

If your files has no
errors
warnings
alerts

and if its just a notice ( customsized error message you need to check the application that is adding notice to the syslog file)

These are just common error messages, it happens every time a user cannot log in because of a failed authentication.

Re: "Found 'NOTICE' in syslog file!"

Shalom Rahul,

The message means either authentication failed for a normal reason or there is a problem with pam, pluggable authentication module.

These errors do not look normal to me.

They look towards a pam problem with configuration or one of the processes within the file.

First look at the pam configuration files and then perhaps trace the process back to the error message.

It could be a problem external to this system if the pam process is not local. It could be pam itself is not properly installed.
