You can use the locate command to find any file on the server. See the example below.

[[email protected]:~]$ locate viminfo
/usr/share/vim/vim63/syntax/viminfo.vim
/home/ben/.viminfo
/home/joe/.viminfo.tmp
/home/joe/.viminfo
/home/jeff/.viminfo
/root/.viminfo


If the locate command complains about no locatedb run the command below to update the locate database.
