The wtmpconvert command reads records from a connect time accounting
file, such as /var/adm/wtmp, and converts the record format to the
updated struct utmp format. If no output file is specified or if the
output file path is identical to the input file path, wtmpconvert makes
a backup copy of the original input file using the following algorithm:
If filename.orig exists. Where n is a unique number.
The wtmpconvert command attempts to detect an input file that is in the
wrong format (for example, input file is already a new format file). A
warning message is issued in this case, but conversion continues.
Success. An error occurred.
To convert an old format accounting file to the new format: wtmpconvert
Upon completion of this command, /var/adm/wtmp.prev will have
been converted to the new format. The original
/var/adm/wtmp.prev is renamed to /var/adm/wtmp.prev.orig. To
convert a wtmp file in new format to the old format: wtmpconvert-r /var/adm/wtmp /var/adm/wtmp.old
