"tree" equivalent in a Unix AIX Environment

I am doing a SAP migration from an onsite data farm to a Collocation out in Phoenix, IBM is requesting a hierarchy break down. instead of typing this all out i know in Linux there is a command such as tree. i have tried that on my AIX SAP machine and have gotten no response. is there an equivalent command on UNIX to get this structure read out, without the filenames in the directory also? Below is what im looking for. any help would be greatly appreciated.
.
   |-bin
   |-boot
   |---grub
   |---lost+found
   |-dev
   |---bus
   |-----usb
   |-------001
   |---disk
   |-----by-id
   |-----by-label
   |-----by-path
   |-----by-uuid
   |---input
   |---mapper
   |---net
   |---pts
   |---shm
   |-etc

Hello techsupportcpm,

You can try
find / -type d

replace / with whatever directory whose structure you wish to have. This would give you the directory structure but it would not be formatted like tree command - just one directory per line.

yea google already kicked back that search and it was tried. the command itself does not run "ls -R | grep ":$" | sed -e 's/:$//' -e 's/[^-][^\/]*\//--/g' -e 's/^/   /' -e 's/-/|/'" from a CLI.

do you mean that the script does not run? have you downloaded the script or you just copy and paste from the site? I personally downloaded the script and ran it on solaris 10 and it is fine.

If you have problem then see the attached snippet

Google is of much help any way :)
