Syslogs permission not getting changed - aix 6.1

Friends,

I've tried to modify the syslogs permission by using the perm option in the syslog configuration in AIX 6.1 TL 05. But its not getting applied after the configuration. Have restarted the syslog service also.

Need your help!Smilie

The below are the conf details and os versions
Code:
[/]> oslevel -s 
6100-05-01-1016

[/]> cat /etc/syslog.conf

# /etc/syslog.conf - control output of syslogd
#
#
# Each line must consist of two parts:-
#
# 1) A selector to determine the message priorities to which the 
#    line applies
# 2) An action.
#
# Each line can contain an optional part:-
#
# 3) Rotation.
#
# The fields must be separated by one or more tabs or spaces.
#
# format:
#
# <msg_src_list> <destination> [rotate [size <size> k|m] [files <files>] [time <time> h|d|w|m|y] [compress] [archive <archive>]]
#
# where <msg_src_list> is a semicolon separated list of <facility>.<priority>
# where:
#
# <facility> is:
#       * - all (except mark)
#       mark - time marks
#       kern,user,mail,daemon, auth,... (see syslogd(AIX Commands Reference)) 
#
# <priority> is one of (from high to low):
#       emerg/panic,alert,crit,err(or),warn(ing),notice,info,debug
#       (meaning all messages of this priority or higher)
#
# <destination> is:
#       /filename - log to this file
#       username[,username2...] - write to user(s)
#       @hostname - send to syslogd on this machine
#       * - send to all logged in users
#
# [rotate [size <size> k|m] [files <files>] [time <time> h|d|w|m|y] [compress] [archive <archive>]] is:
#       If <destination> is a regular file and the word "rotate" is
#       specified, then the <destination> is limited by either
#       <size> or <time>, or both <size> and <time>. The <size> causes
#       the <destination> to be limited to <size>, with <files> files
#       kept in the rotation. The <time> causes the <destination> to be rotated after
#       <time>. If both <time> and <size> are specified then logfiles
#       will be rotated once the the logfile size exceeds the <size>
#       or after <time>, whichever is earlier. The rotated filenames
#       are created by appending a period and a number to <destination>,
#       starting with ".0".
#
#       If compress option is specified then the logfile names will be
#       generated with a ".Z" extension. The files keyword will be applicable
#       to the logfiles which are currently under rotation. For example
#       if we specify the compress option then only fileis with ".Z" extension
#       will be under rotation and number of such files will be limited by
#       <files> files. Any logfiles with an extension other than ".Z"
#       will not be under the rotation scheme and thus will not be within
#       the limit of <files> files. Similarly if we remove the compress
#       option then the files which have been generated with ".Z" extension
#       will no longer be the part of rotation scheme and will not be limited
#       by the <files> files.
#
#       The minimum size that can be specified is 10k, the minimum
#       number of files that can be specified is 2. The default
#       size is 1m (meg) and the default for <files> is unlimited.
#       Therefore, if only "rotate" is specified, the log will be
#       rotated with <size> = 1m.
#       The compress option means that rotated log files that are not
#       in use will be compressed.
#       The archive option will save rotated log files that are not
#       in use to <archive>.
#       The default is not to rotate log files.
#
# example:
# "mail messages, at debug or higher, go to Log file. File must exist."
# "all facilities, at debug and higher, go to console"
# "all facilities, at crit or higher, go to all users"
#  mail.debug           /usr/spool/mqueue/syslog
#  *.debug              /dev/console
#  *.crit                       *
#  *.debug              /tmp/syslog.out     rotate size 100k files 4
#  *.crit               /tmp/syslog.out     rotate time 1d
  *.debug              /var/adm/syslog.out     rotate size 100k files 4
  *.crit               /var/adm/messages     rotate size 100k files 4 
user.debug;*.emerg;*.alert;*.crit,*.err,*.warning,*.notice,*.info,*.debug /syslogs/syslog.log rotate size 3000k files 5 perm 775

[/]> ls -lrt /syslogs/

You will see the change in perms when you go to the next new file, after "log rotate".
Based on your .conf file that looks like Oct 07.
