Unix Techo Tip: Do you ever need to find a particular  LABEL.ASC from a big set of DVD or CD media you downloaded or extracted contents string from your media library. eg Lets say you want to find the DVD with the contents “SAPLUP:700” somewhere in your /sapcd collection.

eg lets say you have downloaded all your SAP DVDs, CDs and Patches to a central directory /sapcd

On Unix try

find /sapcd -name ‘LABEL.ASC’ -exec grep -l SAPLUP:700 {} \; -exec grep SAPLUP:700 {} \;

which will list the matching filename and the string that it matches.

eg The famous ECC6 install “Kernel NW 7.20” Software package problem
