Hi

You could try the 'stat' command in linux (I think this depends on your disto however).

For the stat command try;

stat -c %W filename

or

stat -c %w filename

It doesn't look like you are after a command for an AIX platform here, as you can get the creation time from the file system database that JFS2 provides.

Good luck

Cheers, JP.

Plink thinks that your redirect is part of the command being passed to the remote hose.  You need to put parenthesis around the command and redirect that output to your local windows system.
(plink -P port -l user -pw pass machineName  "command here") >> myfile.txt 2>&1


Did you just want to copy a file from the server to your Windows system?  You would use pscp.exe for that.

Even if we can't include all the files in the base image, we can sometimes include some of the larger files that we would otherwise have to download, and we can also sometimes remove the most time-consuming steps. This can help a lot with reducing deployment times.
