Find command make me crazy

Hi Folks,

Find command make me crazy

Solaris 9
Kernel patch 118558-34

1) 2 Find command /usr/bin/find and /usr/local/bin/find

# ls -lh /usr/bin/find
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root bin 20K Apr 6 2002 /usr/bin/find

# ls -lh /usr/local/bin/find
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root bin 328K Jun 21 2002 /usr/local/bin/find

What is the actual different b/w these two find commands


2) For non root account users use /usr/local/bin/find command (by default) and give the following error when I try to remove the file with find command.

/usr/local/bin/find . -mtime +1 -exec ls -lh {} \;

Value too large for defined data type
Value too large for defined data type
Value too large for defined data type
Value too large for defined data type
Value too large for defined data type

If I use, /usr/bin/find . -mtime +1 -exec ls -lh {} \; --> this works

if I just just find command it shows permission denied

$ /usr/bin/find . -print
/usr/bin/find: cannot open .: Permission denied

The complete directory path has enough permission.

    1) /usr/local/bin/find (and anything else within /usr/local) was not installed by the Solaris installer. You would need to go find the admin that installed it and find out what flavor of "find" it is. /usr/bin/find <b>is</b> the Solaris "find".

    2) It would be nice to see the output of:

    <pre>ls -ld .
    getfacl .</pre>

    for the directory you are trying to run your find against. And whether it is on a local disk or an NFS share.

    Hi

    Please find the permission details below.

    $ pwd
    /u01/oraback/INFO

    $ id -a
    uid=40004(oracle) gid=4002(dba) groups=4002(dba),101(wheel)

    $ ls -ld /u01/oraback/INFO
    drwxr-x--- 2 oracle dba 8192 Aug 23 22:37 /u01/oraback/INFO

    $ ls -ld /u01/oraback
    drwxr-x--- 26 oracle dba 1024 Aug 20 08:23 /u01/oraback

    $ ls -ld /u01
    drwxr-xr-x 6 oracle dba 96 Nov 30 2007 /u01

    $ getfacl .

    # file: .
    # owner: oracle
    # group: dba
    user::rwx
    group::r-x #effective:r-x
    mask:r-x
    other:---


    pwd

    /u01/oraback/INFO

    /usr/bin/find . -print
    /usr/bin/find: cannot open .: Permission denied ----> Gives me an error

    but, if I do it in /tmp, same command works fine :(

    Run this from /u01/oraback/INFO:

    ls -lad ./../../..

    It is possible that your mountpoint /u01 has incorrect permissions. You will not see that unless you umount /u01 and look at the permissions of the directory /u01 before the disk is mounted...

    $ ls -lad ./../../..
    ls: ./../../..: Permission denied

    $ cd ./../../..
    $ pwd
    /

    $ ls -lad ./../../
    drwxr-xr-x 6 oracle dba 96 Nov 30 2007 ./../../
    $ cd ./../../
    $ pwd
    /u01

    It's really strange as this issue just started very recently, the uptime shows more than 400 days. :( and production its, I can't afford to try umount /u01

    log on as root and cd to /u01/oraback/INFO and see what:

    <pre>ls -lad ./../../..</pre>

    shows. I bet it's different than:

    <pre>ls -lad /</pre>

    which would indicate an issue with the mountpoint directory.
  • 8. Re: Find command make me crazy

    No differnce :(

    # ls -lad ./../../..
    drwxr-xr-x 23 root root 1024 Mar 19 2004 ./../../..
    # ls -ld /
    drwxr-xr-x 23 root root 1024 Mar 19 2004 /

    well, this may be a bug. and I can't afford to unmount the filesystem and try as it's a production server.
