Need help on this:
I am a user (free registration) of one RHEL Server on some test drives.
when I issued the command < cat /etc/passwd|grep "my_username" > I could not find "my_username" in that list.
but issuing "users" or "who" shows.
Can you pls tell me why "my_username" is not in that list.
Thanks in Advance for your help.
Thanks & Warm Regards.
