comment How to “cat /etc/shadow” on an HMC?
@Bratchley the HMC is there to manage the hardware, create partitions (LPARs, Micropartitions, whatever you like to call them), allocate out hardware, provide hardware alerting, dial-home, remote console access, patch firmware etc. You can do basic installs of PowerVM (VIOS) from the HMC, but no software management. NIM is the standard product which allows you to install and patch multiple remote AIX systems, but it's not on the same scale as Katello or Spacewalk.

comment How to “cat /etc/shadow” on an HMC?
@Bratchley IBM pSeries HMC's are Intel/AMD boxes which run Linux, and are hardware management consoles for the pSeries hardware. So the HMC stuff is technically a bunch of software just built on Linux, but the key element is that it runs a very restricted shell by default.

AIX doesn't come with bzip2 by default either.

comment File permission issues with shared folders under Virtual Box (Ubuntu Guest, Windows Host)
This is the setup for a Windows host. Since the Windows host doesn't understand UNIX permissions, I'm not sure why anyone expects them to line up. It's likely different with UNIX hosts.

You can not change the permissions. See the end of the answer above.
