Enabling SFTP log on Solaris

Hi Guys,

Hope you can shed the light to this issue.

I have enabled SFTP logging on Linux this way and it works:

Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server -l INFO
But trying this on Solaris it wont work, the ssh goes to maintenance in when checking with svcs.

The logs said a syntax error it doesn't recognize "-l"

You can enable logging on ssh level. Modify /etc/syslog.conf:
Code: /var/log/auth
