Is there any command on F5 which is similar to Unix "locate" command?

Dear Expert,

 

I attempted to run the command "locate" to find out that a file resides in which directory. However I am getting the error message that "locate" command not found.

 

[*****:Active:Standalone] / locate -i alertd.conf -bash: locate: command not found

 

As it's very hard to remember the directory of a file, is there any other command on F5 which is similar to Unix "locate" command?

 

Best Regards,

  • Hi,

     

    I tried but find also didn't help.

     

    [:Active:Standalone] config find -name "alertd.conf" [:Active:Standalone] config find "alertd.conf" find: `alertd.conf': No such file or directory

      Hi Kunjan,

       

      Thank you for sharing the info.

       

      I tried it on my lab appliance, it does not tell the directory name of the file.

       

      [root@fozilab:Active:Standalone] config find / -name alertd.conf [root@fozilab:Active:Standalone] config find / -name "alertd.conf" [root@fozilab:Active:Standalone] config find / -name alertd.conf [root@fozilab:Active:Standalone] config

      Hi Kunjan,

       

      my bad :( , good catch.

       

      I ran the command "find / -name alert" and it stops where it find the first match, is there a way to gte the complete list, like it should display directory for "alert.conf", "user_alert.conf" etc

       

      [root@fozilab:Active:Standalone] config find / -name alert /config/user_alert.conf
