CHANGING OWNERS REGULARLY



If you're an SA and need to change file ownership permissions
on a regular basis, this script may help you. If you want to
change the ownership of all the files owned by abc user to xyz
user, this can be accomplished by chgowner abc xyz with this
script. Of course you should have rootly powers(deity) to change
other people's files ;).

echo "usage: `basename $0` [original file owner] [new file owner]"
exit 1
fi

PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/ucb:/usr/local/bin

FILES=`ls -Al|grep $OLDOWNER|awk '{print $9}'|grep -v "./"`
for i in $FILES; do
chown $NEWOWNER $i
done
