AIX 5.3 - How to check for failed login attempts

AIX failed login attempts, check failed login attempts on AIX

How to check for failed login attempts on AIX
AIX 5.x logs failed login attempts to /etc/security/failedlogin file (don't try to head/grep/tail it, it's data or International Language text)

Code:
$ file /etc/security/failedlogin
/etc/security/failedlogin: data or International Language text

To be able to read this file and list failed login attempts, use who -a /etc/security/failedlogin command:

Code:
$ who -a /etc/security/failedlogin
root      - ssh         Jan 21 09:43      ?
root      - ssh         Jan 21 13:25      ?
