    Hello,

    I've started seeing the following entry in the Logwatch email I get every day, and it's only appeared in the past week or so.

    --------------------- pam_unix Begin ------------------------

    atd:
    ************Unknown Entries:
    ************************session closed for user root: 1 Time(s)
    ************************session opened for user root by (uid=0): 1 Time(s)


    ---------------------- pam_unix End -------------------------

    I'm running 11.32.18 - Is this something I should worry about, or is it something about a new feature that I can stop showing up in the Logwatch emails?

    Thanks!

    Joe

    Ok, thanks for the reply :)

    Sorry to seem dumb, but I take it there's nothing to worry about?

    I think you're fine. This topic has come up a few times over the past week or so, you're not alone in noticing it.

    And its good that you did. Keeping a close eye on those logs is a good thing. :)

    Although ATD had been already running I got the following logwatch entries:

    Code:
     --------------------- pam_unix Begin ------------------------ 
    
    atd:
        Unknown Entries:
           session closed for user root: 1 Time(s)
           session opened for user root by (uid=0): 1 Time(s)
     
     
     ---------------------- pam_unix End ------------------------- 
    
     
     --------------------- Connections (secure-log) Begin ------------------------ 
    
     
     **Unmatched Entries**
     atd[7962]: pam_loginuid(atd:session): set_loginuid failed opening loginuid
     
     ---------------------- Connections (secure-log) End ------------------------- 
    Therefore I stopped and started ATD again. Unfortunately logwatch is still reporting the issue.

    Any ideas how to solve this on cpanel running latest release b25?

    Likely a different cause then as both would be failing. Can you submit a ticket to us for us to check into what is going on? I show no reports of this happening on our ticket system. The option to submit a ticket can be found in my signature or using WHM > Support Center > Contact cPanel area. It would be great if you would post the ticket number here afterward so we can track the issue.
