recusrise pattern search with grep

Am new on hp-ux ..

Found missing recursive pattern search
grep -iR

option that's there on Linux .

Is any one know any way with grep or any advance command available on hp-ux using which i can search a word say "DbFnamesDatLimit" in all files under /etc on hp-ux in single step .

my /etc is about 10GB ...

The below command print the filename
find /etc/ -type f | xargs grep -l "DbFnamesDatLimit"

This "find" looks for the file containing the string.
find /etc -xdev -type f -exec grep -l "DbFnamesDatLimit" {} \;

It's an Omniback parameter in the file:

Beware that the parameter refers to the number of individual database files and not to the size of each file

Yes Methyl it's omni global parameter, Have Omni version A.05.10 .
But I couldn't found it on default location

I found the global file exist at location . But it's not in use with my current setup .

Thanks for solution .
