XDM login to Solaris
Posted on 1997-03-26
We are running Solaris, and some users will use NCD to login to Solaris through XDM.
The "w" command will display all users currently login, but the count of total users are not correct (it seems that the count does not reflect those users logging in with XDM); however, "whodo -l" will count correctly.
So I am confused...when users logon with XDM, will Solaris record it in the utmp file? If it does, how come the "w" count is not correct? If it doesn't, how come "whodo -l" will count correctly? (since both "w" and "whodo" is reading utmp).
Thanks in advance!
