I'm new to Unix and I'm trying to determin how much space I have on this system. the box is dedicated to Oracle and I log in as the oracle user and type quota. It retrunes nothing. Then I log on as root and type quota -v oracle.. It returns nothing! Gosh this is actually a solaris 5.7 box. Am I in the wrong place?

There is a virtual link to another box (also solaris) that stores our archives for backup. I eed to know how much space is available there as well. Why doesnt quota work!!!

Sounds like you do not have quotas enabled on the system -- so you have an unlimited quota. If you just want to find out how much disk space is available, try "df -k"
