Not updating /var/adm/messages


Hi

In one of the prod server, since last 2 days the /var/adm/messages are not generated, Can someone help me what parameters I have to check to resolve this issue.

Thanks
Rajan

Make sure that syslogd is running
Code:
ps -ef|grep syslogd
and if not start it.

Another explanation could be your /var filesystem being full.

As I have checked both above options, both seems ok.

Thanks
