fwtmp, wtmpfix - manipulate connect accounting records


     /usr/lib/acct/fwtmp [-ic]

     /usr/lib/acct/wtmpfix [file...]


     fwtmp reads from the standard input and writes to the  stan-
     dard  output, converting binary records of the type found in
     /var/adm/wtmpx to formatted ASCII records.  The  ASCII  ver-
     sion is useful when it is necessary to edit  bad records.

     wtmpfix examines the standard input or named files in  utmpx
     format,  corrects  the  time/date stamps to make the entries
     consistent, and writes to the standard output.  A hyphen (-)
     can be used in place of file to indicate the standard input.
     If time/date corrections are not performed, acctcon(1M) will
     fault when it encounters certain date-change records.

     Each time the date is set, a pair of date change records are
     written  to /var/adm/wtmpx. The first record is the old date
     denoted by the string "old time" placed in  the  line  field
     and  the flag OLD_TIME placed in the type field of the utmpx
     structure. The second record specifies the new date  and  is
     denoted  by the string new time placed in the line field and
     the flag NEW_TIME placed in the  type  field.  wtmpfix  uses
     these records to synchronize all time stamps in the file.

     In addition to correcting  time/date  stamps,  wtmpfix  will
     check  the validity of the name field to ensure that it con-
     sists solely of alphanumeric characters  or  spaces.  If  it
     encounters a name that is considered invalid, it will change
     the login name to INVALID and  write  a  diagnostic  to  the
     standard error. In this way, wtmpfix reduces the chance that
     acctcon  will  fail  when  processing   connect   accounting


     -ic   Denotes that input is in ASCII form, and output is  to
           be written in binary form.
