How does one change the logging recycle period for the /var/adm/
messages.* file at a Solaris 8 server ? We need to keep messages.* for
over 90 days before creating a new messages.* file . Currently, they
are being overwritten in about 7 to 14 days.


$ ls -lt mess*
-rw--- 1 root other 114062 Apr 29 13:46 messages
-rw--- 1 root other 385135 Apr 27 02:46 messages.0
-rw--- 1 root other 374198 Apr 20 03:05 messages.1
-rw--- 1 root other 372558 Apr 13 02:52 messages.2
-rw--- 1 root other 373193 Apr 6 02:51 messages.3

We need to keep each message for 90 days before another messages.* is
created :

-rw--- 1 root other ********* Apr 29 13:46 messages
-rw--- 1 root other *********Jan 27 02:46 messages.0
-rw--- 1 root other ********* Oct 20 03:05 messages.1
-rw--- 1 root other ********* Jul 13 02:52 messages.2
-rw--- 1 root other ********* Apr 6 02:51 messages.3


Thanks,
