need to access bourne shell on 11iv2

hi our old server has this path /usr/old/bin/sh.
we have a new server running 11iv2 and the /usr/old/bin/sh is not available and one of the application need that path for application configuration. Hope someone can figure this out. Thanks

hello gobi,
type which sh
and check what is full path for sh and then you can create a symbolic link with that path to usr/old/bin/sh.

The bourne shell is dead.
I would suggest your change the script(s) to use a real shell:
#!/usr/bin/sh

Do a man on sh:

NOTE : The Bourne shell (/usr/old/bin/sh) is removed from the system starting with HP-UX 11i Version 1.5. Please use the POSIX shell (/usr/bin/sh) as an alternative.


It's very difficult to find what isn't there. You might want to try the alternative, as suggested.
