How can I find out the users setup on a Linux box


Hi, I am trying to find out how to see what users are setup on a Linux box from the CLI.

How can I do this?

You mean you want to see what users you have on the machine? /etc/passwd has a list of all users. Not sure if thats what you are looking for though.

Or if you are referring to which users are currently logged on your system you can type:

"finger" or "who" (w/o quotation marks)

Thanks for the replies. I need to know which users are set up on the system...

Unfortunetley they are "Virtual Users" setup with vadduser - How can I see which usernames I've setup?

Thanks
