    /var/log/message or /var/log/secure for ssh information?

      Hi There,


      I just wanted to confirm with you if ssh information is recorded onto /var/log/message or /var/log/secure.


      According to VMware documentation ssh activity is recorded onto /var/log/secure but my environment shows the opposite. None ssh activity was recorded in /var/log/secure


      # tail -f /var/log/messages

      Aug 16 11:25:20 esx1 sshd[2794]: Accepted password for root from port 2725 ssh2

      Aug 16 11:25:20 esx1 sshd(pam_unix)[2794]: session opened for user root by (uid=0)
