Embedded 1.2 - Multiple "login: login on console as root" msgs in log



  • Not sure what is going on here… looking through the system log with my embedded 1.2 installation I see the message "login: lognin on console as root" every 15 minutes or so. For example:

    May 8 01:00:02 login: login on console as root
    May 8 00:45:02 login: login on console as root
    May 8 00:30:03 login: login on console as root
    May 8 00:15:02 login: login on console as root
    May 8 00:00:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 23:45:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 23:35:01 check_reload_status: check_reload_status is starting
    May 7 23:30:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 23:15:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 23:00:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 22:45:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 22:30:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 22:15:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 22:00:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 21:45:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 21:30:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 21:15:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 21:00:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 20:45:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 20:30:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 20:15:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 20:00:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 19:45:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 19:30:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 19:15:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 19:00:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 18:45:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 18:30:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 18:15:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 18:00:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 17:50:49 login: login on console as root
    May 7 17:50:32 check_reload_status: reloading filter
    May 7 17:50:19 init: getty repeating too quickly on port /dev/console, sleeping 30 secs
    May 7 17:50:16 last message repeated 3 times
    May 7 17:50:19 init: getty repeating too quickly on port /dev/console, sleeping 30 secs
    May 7 17:50:12 check_reload_status: reloading filter
    May 7 17:45:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 17:30:02 login: login on console as root
    May 7 17:15:03 login: login on console as root
    May 7 17:00:03 login: login on console as root

    With that type of timing I'm guessing that some process is generating the message.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    P.S. Secure shell is not enabled. However, the message also appears when it is enabled.
