log in /var/log/messages
I have a Linux Enterprise Server 2.1 running on my server.
Did the installation sometime around Nov 2004. When I view the log in /var/log/messages I can't see any logs that was recorded since Nov 2004.
In /var/log I see messages, messages.1 , messages.2, messages.3 and messages.4 ...
When I vi file messages.4, the log was recorded sometime around March 2005 ... this means that all the "messages" file in /var/log will have is the latest log, which is today, and the first log that was recorded sometime around March 2005.
This also means that I can't view any log before March 2005 ... is this normal ?
How can I get any logs that was recorded since day 1 the server started to run?
