Last updated on OCTOBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 10/08 U6 to 10 8/11 U10 [Release 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Logfiles get rotated but writing continues to the original rotated file rather than the new logfile.

This can result in the rotated file growing without limit.

Changes

 Added custom options to smf_logs line in /etc/logadm.conf
