Note: This subroutine is not thread-safe.
subroutine performs the processing necessary when a user successfully logs
into the system. This subroutine updates the following attributes in
the /etc/security/lastlog file for the specified user:
|time_last_login||Contains the current time.|
|tty_last_login||Contains the value specified by the Tty parameter.|
|host_last_login||Contains the value specified by the Host parameter or the local host name if the Host parameter is a null value.|
|unsuccessful_login_count||Indicates the number of unsuccessful login attempts. The loginsuccess subroutine resets this attribute to a value of 0.|
Additionally, a login success audit record is cut to indicate in the audit trail that this user has successfully logged in.
A message is returned in the Msg parameter that indicates the time, host, and port of the last successful and unsuccessful login. The number of unsuccessful login attempts since the last successful login is also provided to the user.
|User||Specifies the login name of the user who has successfully logged in.|
|Host||Specifies the name of the host from which the user logged in. If the Host parameter is a null value, the name of the local host is used.|
|Tty||Specifies the name of the terminal which the user used to log in.|
|Msg||Returns a message indicating the delete time, host, and port of the last successful and unsuccessful logins. The number of unsuccessful login attempts since the last successful login is also provided. Upon return, the value is either a pointer to a valid string within memory allocated storage or a null pointer. It is the responsibility of the calling program to free( ) the returned storage.|
Access Control: The calling process must have access to the account information in the user database.
Upon successful completion, the loginsuccess subroutine returns a value of 0. Otherwise, a value of -1 is returned and the errno global value is set to indicate the error.
subroutine fails if one or more of the following values is true:
|ENOENT||The specified user does not exist.|
|EACCES||The current process does not have write access to the user database.|
|EPERM||The current process does not have permission to write an audit record.|
