[LDM #YWU-538195]: AIX Rotate Syslog


> Is AIX syslog.conf 'rotate' parm disruptive to ldm 's logging?

I don't know. We've never used the AIX syslog.conf "rotate" parameter because 
it's non-standard.

> We would like to try to use it's AIX syslogd rotation than ldm's.
> Our ldm admin has shorten when ldm 'hups' our syslogd.  Now our

The LDM system's mechanism for rotating log files can be disabled in LDM 6.9 
and later packages by setting the registry parameter "/log/rotate" to 0 via the 
command "regutil -u 0 /log/rotate" and in LDM 6.8 and earlier packages by 
editing the file "etc/ldmadmin-pl.conf" and setting the parameter "$log_rotate" 
to 0. You must also ensure that the command "ldmadmin newlog" is never executed 
(by a crontab(1) entry, for example).
