    I have two questions, hopefully the gurus here know the answers... :)

    The results of "df -h" on my rtn-16 give this:

    Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/root 6.6M 6.6M 0 100% /
    tmpfs 62.0M 964.0K 61.1M 2% /tmp
    devfs 62.0M 0 62.0M 0% /dev
    - 132.7G 87.7G 45.0G 66% /cifs1

    Seems okay, I was just wondering if the "dev/root" being at 100% usage is normal. Sorry if this is elementary...

    Secondly, I'm trying to figure out how to write a script that will take the results of "df -h" and save them to a text file on the cifs (or other) drive. I know I'm missing something simple... anyone have an idea?

    Yep, that's normal. That's the read-only part of the filesystem.

    df -h > /cifs1/filename

    Thank you so much for the fast reply... it was quite helpful! I had been placing the cat command in there and it never worked right...

    I understand if I place ">>" instead of ">" it will append the current file instead of replacing, correct?

    Thanks again!

    Yep. Exactly :)
