is 31860 my disk usage? 31 MBytes?
<sigh> I'm going to regret this, but...
man -s4 passwd
(and I hope to god AIX uses the same manual sections as Solaris...)
Your password is the second field (the !). You don't see it because 1) the
password itself is in another file (/etc/security/password, in AIX) that is
readable only by root, and 2) even if it wasn't shadowed, it would still be
encrypted. 31860 is your UID (as well as your primary GID).
o consarnt let me do the math agin..
Filesystem 512-blocks Free %Used Iused %Iused Mounted on
%512 blocks.. does that mean i should have divided by two above
and came to the conclusion that i am using about 15.5MBytes?
It's telling you that the data it's showing you is in 512kilobyte size blocks.
Thus yes, divide the numbers by 2 to get a rough approximation of the number
of MB shown. However this tells you nothing about how much disk space you
personally are using.
Kayven, I don't mean to be insulting or anything, but you might consider
picking up a copy of a basic Unix book, such as Oreilly's "Learning the UNIX
Operating System" ( http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/lunix4/ )
