Here is an example with grep

[(qtjbc)l17asp03:/db2/DEV/scripts/updatekrnl]>sudo grep lt start_sap.ksh
corp AD Password:
if [[ $# -lt 2 ]] then
while [[ ${IND} -lt ${NUMOFMOUNTS} ]]
               Eko "rdisp/start_icman not set in instance profile, default value (TRUE) is being used" >> ${LOGFILE}

[(qtjbc)l17asp03:/db2/DEV/scripts/updatekrnl]>grep lt start_sap.ksh
if [[ $# -lt 2 ]] then
while [[ ${IND} -lt ${NUMOFMOUNTS} ]]
               Eko "rdisp/start_icman not set in instance profile, default value (TRUE) is being used" >> ${LOGFILE}
               Eko "rdisp/j2ee_start not set in instance profile, default value (FALSE) is being used" >> ${LOGFILE}
            Eko "${b} was added to BWPROCESSES, however, do not know what the default value is set to" >> ${LOGFILE}
if [[ ${RUNNINGPROCS} -lt ${NUMPROCS} ]] then

I am seeing something odd with servers that have been moved to Corp AD. Some commands are not giving accurate or on consistent results.

You can see here that the same command generates different results. I am noticing with grep. I am not sure if is the user migration or the AIX patch since all the servers patched have been migrated to Corp AD.

In your second example (sudo ls -l), you ran the exact same command twice and got different results? –  Kevin VW May 1 at 18:47
    
we have same kind of problem when user starting the command is a "false" root. Generic ps show root as user but this is not a real full root and some command (especialy sudo) failed sometimes (1 to 20 in our case). ps -o pid,logname,uid,comm -u root should give an ID of 1 for a "true" root. Don't have the reason why. –  NeronLeVelu May 13 at 8:49
