The most common solution was

find /u01 -print -cpio -ocv | gzip > disk2.tar.gz


find /u01 -print -cpio -ocv | gzip > disk2.tar.Z

However, some mentioned that the file created isn't a tar archive, but a
cpio file.. They are right... However, it's somewhat disturbing that I found
that command

find /u01 -print -cpio -ocv > /u01.tar in the Sun Managers archives..

Well, thanks to those who pointed out that error..
