This find syntax seems a little easier to remember for me when I have to use -prune on AIX's find. It works with gnu find, too.

Add whatever other find options after -prune

Get the amount of physical memory in an HP-UX v11 OS when following are NOT available:

- root account

- no privileges in /proc

- no privileges in /dev/mem

Mirror every lvol in vg00 in hp-ux 11.31

nwmgr -q info -c lan0

By setting the UNIX95 variable in HP-UX the XPG4 mode is activated, you get new options for ps and other commands, for me the best way to use this is to create an alias named ptree in root profile: alias ptree='UNIX95=1 ps -eH'

for i in in $(vgdisplay -v vg00 | grep "LV Name" | awk '{ print $3 };'); do; lvextend -m 1 $i /dev/disk/<here-goes-the-disk>; done

Create one mirror copy of every lvol in the vg00 just after a cold install of an HP-UX 11.31. Cna be used also for 11.23 but remember that in 11iv2 there is no agile view so the disk will be /dev/dsk/cxtxdxs2

you must be in the directory to analyse

report all files and links in the currect directory, not recursively.

this find command ahs been tested on hp-ux/linux/aix/solaris.
