Lastlog script help


Hi everyone,

I need a little help here. I was told I need to hand over every login from every users of every nix-like systems.

On linux it was quite easy with the lastlog utility. The output looks like this:

Code:
Username         Port     From             Latest
tien                                       **Never logged in**
msimard                                    **Never logged in**
ydoucet          pts/1    10.5.5.2         Wed Sep 12 14:32:24 -0400 2007
nagios                                     **Never logged in**
nbouchard        pts/0    10.9.5.60        Mon Sep 10 14:09:30 -0400 2007
ftpimg                                     **Never logged in**
apache                                     **Never logged in**
But on Solaris I'm having a hard time. I've found lastx, which give me every last login and it looks like this:

Code:
bash-2.05# lastx -u
Username             Logins  Terminal   Host                 Last Logged in 
etudia10                  3  pts/8      10.9.2.114           Thu Nov 30 16:53:55 2006
etudia08                  3  pts/16     10.9.2.102           Mon Dec 18 14:46:49 2006
scportca                  4  pts/3      10.9.18.55           Wed Sep 12 11:32:24 2007
etudia09                  3  pts/14     10.9.2.104           Thu Nov 30 16:53:29 2006
etudia11                  1  pts/6      10.9.1.71            Thu Nov 30 16:54:17 2006
scolbory                  4  pts/3      10.9.1.60            Wed Jun  7 15:23:51 2006
So far so good, except I don't get those that never logged in. Can someone help me with that? I'm no script guru. I tried something but it doesn't work:

Code:
cat /etc/passwd|cut -d ":" -f1
gives me the login name of all users on the system,
Code:
lastx -u|cut -d " " -f1
gives me the login name of all users that has ever logged in the system.

I tried

Code:
grep -v `lastx -u|cut -d " " -f1` /etc/passwd|cut -d ":" -f1
with no success.

Anyone?

Thank you very much.

I think a for loop could do you some good. Because `lastx -u|cut -d " " -f1` outputs a list so you need to take one item per time. Maybe something like:
for i in `cat /etc/passwd|cut -d ":" -f1`; do grep $i ...

Maybe this one:
Code:
for i in `cat /etc/passwd|cut -d ":" -f1`;do if (lastx -u|cut -d " " -f1|grep -q $i);then echo $i yes; else echo $i no; fi;echo bla; done
On my system it looks like:
Code:
for i in `cat /etc/passwd|cut -d ":" -f1`;do if (last|cut -d " " -f1|grep -q $i);then echo $i yes; else echo $i no; fi;echo bla; done
root yes
bla
bin no
bla
daemon no
bla
So the yes is the users that have logged in.
A littlebit cleaner to only output a list of non-logged in users:
Note that we invert the if statement here with !
This gives us a list of users that have not logged in:
Code:
for i in `cat /etc/passwd|cut -d ":" -f1`;do if ! (last|cut -d " " -f1|grep -q $i);then echo $i; fi; done
Your version:
Code:
for i in `cat /etc/passwd|cut -d ":" -f1`;do if ! (lastx -u|cut -d " " -f1|grep -q $i);then echo $i; fi; done

Since this pertains Solaris I'll move the thread there.

@muha, its better to break down the code for OP to understand and not cram everything into one line.
@OP. Just an example, adapt to your needs
Code:
last > outlast 
nawk 'BEGIN{FS=":"}
     FNR==NR{user[$1]; next}
     { FS=" " 
       if ( $1 in user ) print $0  
     }
' "/etc/passwd" "outlast"
