i need to copy an entire directory to a nfs share - then I would like to copy only the changed filed to the nfs share. to copy only the changed files - so far i have this

find / -type f -xdev -mtime -1 -print | xargs ll | sort -rn -k5

I was wondering if it would work to pipe this find's output into a file - then somehow use the file to use the rcp command to copy only the changed files to my nfs share, would this be possible?

FYI, you don't need to use "| xargs ll | sort -rn -k5"

you can direct the output of the find command to a file for later use.

eg:
find / -type f -xdev -mtime -1 -print >/tmp/myfilelist

and create a tar ball for the files in the list
tar -cvf /tmp/mtfile.tar `cat /tmp/myfilelist`

to make backup and restore easier, you should use related path to create the list.
eg
cd /
find . -type f -xdev -mtime -1 -print >/tmp/myfilelist

you can also use find + cp to copy files in one go, pleae look at the example
in http:Q_22575711.html

for more details.
Have a nice weekend!

There's a better way. Use rync to copy the changed files. As an example if /mnt/target is the nfs mount point and /home/files is the directory to be mirrored to the nfs mount point, the following command will sync the two directories:

rsync -av --delete /home/files/ /mnt/nfs

See "man rsync" for more information.

I don't have rsyn. It is not in HPUX which is what my server runs.

agreed with jlevie, rsync is a better tool for backup.

You can downlaod the binary package for HP-UX from:
http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Networking/Admin/rsync-3.0.7/

Please remember to download and install all the dependencies packages. (just follow the links in the download page).
