Syslog not logging successful logging while unlocking server's console

When unlocking a Linux server's console there's no event indicating successful logging
Is there a way I can fix this ?
I have the following in my rsyslog.conf
Code:
auth.info               /var/log/secure
authpriv.info           /var/log/secure

Are those spaces or tabs?

Some syslog implementations require the use of tabs.
