Original question follows :
Once again, I come for collective wisdom of noble sun-managers !
My system has /var/log/syslog file of 0(zero) bytes. While setting up
anonymous ftp server, I was supposed to get ALL messages in this file.
(I am starting ftpd with -l option). I can successfully login as
anonymous user, transfer file but syslog file doesn't make any entry.
I have checked that :
1. /etc/syslog.conf exists (rw-r--r-- root sys)
2. /usr/sbin/syslogd exists(rwxr--r-- root sys) and daemon is running.
System : Netra625i with NetraOS (SS20 with Solaris 2.4 - customized)
Any help is appreciated and I will summarize.
