Unix Techo Tip: Finding the right DVD Label from your media library.

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

      Hi Glenn,

      been there, seen that, got the t'shirt and the scars.

      Excellent tip.

      I will put it in my magic Excel sheet.

      Thanks for sharing.
