[Bug 1946] New: AIX and /var/adm/wtmp
https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1946

Bug #: 1946
Summary: AIX and /var/adm/wtmp
Classification: Unclassified
Product: Portable OpenSSH
Version: 5.9p1
Platform: PPC
OS/Version: AIX
Status: NEW
Severity: normal
Priority: P2
Component: sshd
AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs@mindrot.org
ReportedBy: yaberger@ca.ibm.com


I've compiled and using OpenSSH 5.9p1 on AIX 6.1 TL6 SP4 / SP5
I've compiled it using this configure command:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/openssh-5.9p1 --sysconfdir=/etc/ssh
--without-shadow --with-ssl-dir=/usr/local/openssl
--with-zlib=/usr/local/zlib

I've set some Public Key Authentication between a few systems.
My /var/adm/wtmp has started to increase in size but I can't see any
entry being added when I try to display the content using those two
commands:
last
who /var/adm/wtmp

But I'm guessing it's coming from OpenSSH because of this command:
strings /var/adm/wtmp |tail -n 20
openssh

N¡f-
openssh
N¡f-
openssh
N¡f2
openssh
N¡f7
openssh
N¡f<
openssh

Need to figure what is being added in /var/adm/wtmp, if it's normal and
why it's not possible to display it with the regular commands such as
"last" and "who /var/adm/wtmp"


Best regards,

Yannick Bergeron
