RE: Rotating wtmp



You should note that the command 'logrotate -f' will force immediate
rotation for all log files specified in logrotate configuration. If you
want to rotate only the /var/log/wtmp you  should create logrotate
configuration file with the rules for rotation of wtmp file only and
then specify that configuration file on the command line for 'logrotate
-f'.
Of course, you can also "rotate" the wtmp file by copyung it manually.
