loginlog(4)                      File Formats                      loginlog(4)



NAME
       loginlog - log of failed login attempts

DESCRIPTION
       After  five unsuccessful login attempts, all the attempts are logged in
       the file /var/adm/loginlog. This file  contains  one  record  for  each
       failed attempt. Each record contains the login name, tty specification,
       and time.

       This is an ASCII file. Each field within each entry is  separated  from
       the  next  by  a colon. Each entry is separated from the next by a new-
       line.

       By default, loginlog does not exist, so no logging is done.  To  enable
       logging,  the  log  file must be created with read and write permission
       for owner only. Owner must be root and group must be sys.

FILES
       /var/adm/loginlog
