strange message

In my Redhat server , I have a database is running on it , I have the below message is often appear in the database , I am not sure what is it , but I am wonder why it pop that we have root user login from console ( message 1 ) , is it mean someone use root user to login the database from console ? I sure we do not do it , we seldom login from console , but the message pop frenquently , can advise what is it mean ? the message 2 is from another database ( another server ) , it also pop frenquently , it seems mean root run batch in the database , I think it is normal as we run some batch job from root user , can advise how to fix the error of message 1 ? thx

message 1
Login by root on /dev/console

message 2
Login by root on batch

Re: strange message


It would help to know what database we are talking about and what version and update of RHEL as well.

message 1 is not an error. Someone is logging on the system as root at the console. It could also be tracking a user logging on the console via ilo.

What is the full path of this file.

Hi heaman1,

maybe you are running some script from crontab,

and the script use su - (DB_user ==> for backup ).
