User's name doesn't disappear after they logout?

User's name doesn't disappear after they logout?

Post by Joshua Chan » Fri, 17 Dec 1999 04:00:00



Hello~

I ever found Q&A about this question. But I still don't know how to fix it.
I know if I clear "/etc/utmp" & "/etc/utmpx" or reboot this machine will
clear the login data.
But I can't do it all the time or reboot Server everyday. What should I do?

Thanks & Best Regards
Joshua Chang

Upgrade to the latest version - assuming you are talking of
Openserver 5.

Hello Joshua,

i think you have a problem with the file "/etc/auth/system/ttys". Set this
file to zero and all is ok.
You can do this without rebooting the system.

1. The 'last' command doesn't record users logout

It seems that the 'last' command only shows who logged in at what time,
but when the user has logged out, it fail to record it. So the user
once logged in will always recorded as login:

user1    ttyp7        Thu Dec  9 15:25 - 01:13 (still logged in)

user1 logout at 15:30 actually.

What is wrong with it? Where should I start looking?
Also I would like to log the machine that the person is login
from, like:

user2   ttyp2    halfdome.eecg.to Tue Dec  7 18:51 - 19:57  (01:05)

THanks
