Viewing output of pwck

Is there a method of saving the output of pwck to a file for later review? I have attempted to '>', '>>' and '-&1>'.

Hi Brian!

Try this

# pwck 2>file_name

to save the output.

Re: Viewing output of pwck

outputs from pwck are sent to stderr (file descriptor 2) so you would have to redirect 2 to the stdout (which can be redirected to your logfile)

eg. # pwck > logfile 2>&1
nothing wrong with me that a few lines of code cannot fix!

1 ) You may use this command:
# pwck 2>&1 | tee -a outfile

nobody:*:-2:-24::/:
Invalid GID
2) check your output file, note error also appears in your screen.
# more outfile

nobody:*:-2:-24::/:
Invalid GID
