Hello Rudic,

When I execute :

1) $ last -f /var/log/wtmpx , because wtmp does not exist
I get
wtmp begins Tue Jan 21 11:55

/var/log/wtmpx was created janvier 21 02:10
It contains 0 bytes now.

I didn't get what am looking for.

2) $ last -f /var/adm/wtmpx
I get
wtmp begins Tue Jan 21 08:04

3) $ last -f /var/adm/WTMPX020 ---> I try on this file because its date is 19/01/2014
I get
wtmp begins Tue Jan 21 08:04

Thanks in advance
Best regards

Well, looks like wtmp is being deleted/overwritten quite frequently. Any janitor (like log_rotate) or cleanup (maybe at boot time) processes running? Any old wtmp files available?

Hi Rudic,

I am sorry... I commited errors typing the command...

$ last -f /var/adm/WTMPX020 ---> I try on this file because its date is 19/01/2014

That command works properly. There is a different file for each day.

Thanks you, Rudic and MadeinGermany for your help Smilie
