Here's an issue me and my co-workers are dealing with. When I'm logging into my Linux machine using SSH, I'm able to the time I logged in using lastlog. But when we're logging in locally, it says never logged in. Why is that?

    Probably this is an issue of permission. Go to the account that you wanted to run this command and check read/write permission. You can see this page here: https://linux.die.net/man/8/lastlog
