Just remember to set rotate to the value of months you need to maintain.

Hi everyone,
We have an issue here at the institute.  Our rh ws 4's and fedora's are
running on instruments and the lab uses the file
wtmp to bill the users for the time they are spending on these
instruments.  The problem is, at the end of the month,
the wtmp file deletes itself.  We need to get it set up to copy to a
file, i.e.,

wtmp=this month
wtmp1=last month
wtmp2=the month before

does anyone know how I can do this?  Any advice/suggestions/opinions
will be generously welcome.
Many thanks in advance.

My /etc/logrotate.conf rotates the wtmp file. Try doing that:

# no packages own wtmp -- we'll rotate them here
/var/log/wtmp {
    create 0644 root utmp
    rotate 1
