How to read the man page for commands related to cluster

Hi Experts,

In my system cluster is installed and the related files are inside /usr/cluster. I want to use the man page of command which are related to cluster.
The man pages related to cluster are inside /usr/cluster/man, however I am not sure how can I read the man page for command e.g. scconf etc.
I’ve no root access on this system

MANPATH=/usr/cluster/man man scconf

You can also write
export MANPATH

into your .profile to make this permanent, so that you can simply write "man scconf".

Appreciate your help and its worked, however now I can’t access the other command man page !!! Though I inserted the path into the MANPATH as MANPATH=$MANPATH:/ Smilie

Also, if I go and list the environment variables after closing my session there is no reference of MANPATH on initial logging. I know to make persistence across logging I have to place the entry my .profile.

Does it work, if you put this in your .profile?

export MANPATH
