When I run this as a non-root user it works fine. But, when running it as root, it does not produce the expected results. $ ls -l /fjdkslafjdl 2>/home/hallja/test2 And, in the file test2, I see ls: /fjdkslafjdl: No such file or directory Running the same command as root, I receive the following results. # ls -l /fjdkslafjdl 2>/home/hallja/test2 ls: /fjdkslafjdl: No such file or directory And, in /home/hallja/test2 I see the following. -rw-r--r-- 1 root hallja 0 Dec 21 08:02 2 Why does this not work as root?
