Find command permission error

I am having a problem with the find command when I ssh into my server. I get the following error:

[root /]# find -path enterprise
find: ./proc/6/fd: Permission denied
[root /]#

Am I doing something wrong here?

Well, never had heard about that FIND command. Anyways, did you tried:

man find

Usually manual helps a lot! Just my .02
