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

Thanks

Code:
MANPATH=/usr/cluster/man man scconf

You can also write
Code:
MANPATH=$MANPATH:/usr/cluster/man
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?

Code:
MANPATH=/usr/share/man:/usr/sfw/man:/usr/cluster/man
export MANPATH
