syslogd - unable to log ?


I wanted to log some authentication information, so I added following line to /etc/syslog.conf: /home/vilius/dir1/eeerrr.log
After that I refreshed syslogd subsystem:
refresh -s syslogd

To check my logging I made few unsuccessfull attempts to login as root using ssh and telnet. After that I checked dir1 - nothing no single file!
What am I doing wrong ?

Sorry, I don't know about AIX, so excuse me if I'm thinking wrong. But all the logs aren't supposed to be at /var/log/* ?
