Is it wrong on the B server. if yes, how to fix it?

A server:

a.abc.com refused connections:
---------------------------------------------------
B Server:

b.abc.com login failures:

Does this show anything on b: ls /var/log/messages.0*.gz

(peter, if /etc/newsyslog.conf are same on both servers, ignore this message)

just a guess, but i think peter is trying to use same script (or set of commands) on both servers but server b is missing *gz files...could it be that he may need to update /etc/newsyslog.conf to allow for *gz files?

Did you erased any .gz in /var/log?
If yes, that's why it's spitting out this error, it's looking in the old archives to know if there was any refused connections/login failures. Nothing alarming in there.
