    Hello ,


    It seems file /var/log/wtmp is missing. Please follow up below procedure.


    1. check if there is /var/log/wtmp.

    root@% ls -la /var/log/wtmp


    2. If no such file, we will create it.

    root@% touch /var/log/wtmp

    root@% chmod 664 /var/log/wtmp

    root@% chown root /var/log/wtmp


    3. check it again.

    root@% ls -la /var/log/wtmp .
