Finding directories when logged in as normal user
Posted on 2007-07-27
I login to HP-UX with a account abc.
I want to find directories 'COC, DCM, SFA, & DWH' with it's complete path.
I use find / -name 'COC' -name 'DCM' -name 'SFA' -name 'DCW' -type d
and unix displays a list of files it could not open (as it does not have administrative permission)
find: cannot open <complete path>
I also try locate command. However, it shows a list of files (not directories) with names COC,DCM etc.
I doubt if the locate 'database' is updated.
When i try updatedb command, the system responds with Permission denied message.
How do i check the complete path of directories under user abc:
'COC, DCM, SFA, & DWH'
