Login error in /var/adm/messages

I had an issue with ssh on one of my servers and noticed the following
errors, listed below.

Errors in /var/adm/messages
sshd lastlog_perform_login: Couln't stat /var/adm/lastlog: permission denied
sshd lastlog_openseek: /var/adm/lastlog is not a file or directory!
automountd self_check: unknown host: code (try again later)

I then checked to see if the file was there.
ls -l /var/adm/lastlog
-rwxrw-r--  1  root  root  /var/adm/lastlog

The ssh issue is now fixed. I then checked my other serves. All of them have
this error in the logs. How do I fix this? I get this error every time some
logs in with ssh
