How to convert this linux command to Unix AIX?

I have tried this command and work in CentOS:
tail --line=0 --retry -f --follow=name --max-unchanged-stats=1 logFile.log

But in AIX, the tail haven't "--retry" "--follow=name" option.

Thanks in advance.

I would figure out what each of those switches are doing in linux (man find).
Then look at the same man page on the aix server.
Compare the available options and see what is needed and what isn't.

You'll probably end up with tail -f filename. But you should check and make sure!
