What error?

That's not what i wrote - the end of the "find" line should be:

    -exec rm '{}' \;

the single quotes round the {} stop the shell interpreting the braces, and the backslash before the ; does the same (no, I'm not sure why I use two different ways to protect text from the shell, but that just seems to be the way this style of command is always written!)

You don't gain any increase in security, cause you need the plain text password.

I'm not familiar with the command line tools of DB2, so an alternative may be using certifications instead. But this solution would be the same as placing your credentials in a separate file, so that you can share your script with others, just place the credentials file in your home.

For archiving, something like
find  /userin/dev/archive -mtime +10 -exec rm '{}' \;

Open in new window

will remove all files older than 10 days in that directory and any subdirectories.

what i need is archive then remove
For archive, to move a specific file to the archive directory, add this to the end of your script:

    cp /userin/MAT_Integration_dev/marketing_acct_em.log /userin/dev/archive/marketing_acct_em_$(date '+%Y%m%d_%H%M%S').log

That will copy the named file, add a timestamp (as YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS) to the name, and put it into the archive directory.

The archive removal line I gave earlier doesn't actually look at the time and date in the file name - it relies ion the "last modified" timestamp built into the file information.

getting below error when i put delete ate end of script

#---- Delete files older then 10 days from archive folder

find  /userin/dev/archive/ -type f -mtime +10 -exec rm {}/
