Fix utmp - remove orphaned utmp entry


This entry is to help those who have hundreds of users logged in and have a process depending on results from "who" or "w" that is broken due to an orphaned record in the active utmp file.

If you have a running system like that and you don't want to have to add a script to null the utmp file during the shutdown process and then shutdown and reboot... here is a method...

If your system has the executable "utmpdump", you're half way there...
(If not, I'll post the needed source below...)
This program will sequentially dump the content of a utmp (or wtmp) file into a text file. Because it dumps sequentially, you can determine the record number of the entry you'd like to delete by determining the line number where it occurs in the text file. I use "vi" in my example and find the line and use the Control-G command to get the line number.

The current utmp/wtmp binary records are 384 bytes, fixed length...
(If your utmp file is older, then the record size will need adjusting)
So, once you figure out which record number you want to delete, you can use "dd" to re-construct a new utmp file minus the bad record...


Here is the script that enables you to remove the bad record.
I called it "delutmpentry":
Code:
#!/bin/bash
#
# delutmpentry
#
# Remove an entry from the utmp file
# when "w" and "who" show a user logged in that really isn't
# 
# Depends: /usr/bin/utmpdump, /bin/dd, /usr/bin/expr,
#          /usr/bin/vi, /bin/cat, /bin/mv, /bin/chmod, /bin/chown
#
# utmp and wtmp are 384 byte fixed length records
# utmpdump exists on some systems and can be compiled
# on others. Once it is there, you can use it to dump out the
# content of utmp/wtmp sequentially - then, once you find
# the line number in the utmpdump output file, you have
# the record number to skip over when re-creating the
# file - which you can do with dd !!!
#

OS=`uname -s | cut -c1-3`
case ${OS} in
"Lin")  ECHO="echo -e"
        ;;
"SCO")  ECHO="echo"
        ;;
esac

# Set std location of utmp file
UTMP=/var/run/utmp

/usr/bin/utmpdump $UTMP > /tmp/utmp0.$$
$ECHO "Find out what line number the entry is on and then quit vi."
$ECHO "Press enter to start vi: \c"
read ans gbg
vi /tmp/utmp0.$$
$ECHO "Enter the line number to remove: \c"
read ans gbg
SkipLines=`expr $ans + 0`
[ $SkipLines -le 0 ] && {
  $ECHO "Exiting without taking any actions."
  exit 0
}
BegLines=`expr $ans - 1`
[ $BegLine -gt 0] && dd if=$UTMP of=/tmp/utmp1.$$ bs=384 count=$BegLines
dd if=$UTMP of=/tmp/utmp2.$$ bs=384 skip=$SkipLines
cat /tmp/utmp1.$$ /tmp/utmp2.$$ > /tmp/utmp3.$$
mv $UTMP $UTMP.save$$
mv /tmp/utmp3.$$ $UTMP
chmod 644 $UTMP
chown root:utmp $UTMP
If you don't have utmpdump on your system, you need 2 things, utmpdump.c and oldutmp.h. They are GPL'd.

Here is utmpdump.c:

#ifndef OLD_UTMP_H
#define OLD_UTMP_H

#define OLD_LINESIZE		12
#define OLD_NAMESIZE		8
#define OLD_HOSTSIZE		16

struct oldutmp {
	short	ut_type;
	int	ut_pid;
	char	ut_line[OLD_LINESIZE];
	char	ut_id[4];
	long	ut_oldtime;
	char	ut_user[OLD_NAMESIZE];
	char	ut_host[OLD_HOSTSIZE];
	long	ut_oldaddr;
};

#endif
Put utmpdump.c and oldutmp.h in a folder, go into that folder and compile using the command:
cc -O2 -s utmpdump.c -o ./utmpdump

If all is well with the compilation, move the new executable to /usr/bin and you're set.

Enjoy!

Great post!

Thanks for your timely post. I was trying to get finger working and tracked one of the problems to a bad utmp entry on one system.

I found a couple of things in 'delutmpentry' that needed to be fixed:

[line 44] $BegLine needs to be $BegLines
[line 44] You need a space between "0" and "]"
[line 49] This may be my systems only, but the mode should be 664

I was glad that your script saved backups while I tracked these down!

Happy December out there.

Post Nice, but I'm having some issues.

Hi!

I have "ghost entries" in my /var/run/utmp, causing "w" to return 6 logged on users, although it's only me in.
Running Ubuntu 10.04 on this particular machine with the problems (which I also do not wish to just simply reboot).
I tried the (in thread) suggested "cc -O2 -s utmpdump.c -o ./utmpdump" and it yields lots of errors.
