I've tried the --quiet option but that does not stop cpio from filling the screen with a list of all the contents in the temp path. I don't want any progress display. Just want cpio to do the deed and stay silent about the whole process. Google not being my friend on this search
If you don't want it to print the file listing, why are you using specifically telling cpio to do so with -v (verbose)? I'm not sure how you had trouble finding this. Forget Google if you started by reading the man/info page or the options section of the online cpio manual
you would have seen that -v is to "List the files processed".
Remove the -v to get rid of the list and add --quiet (to prevent the summary of blocks copied from being printed).
: What you wanted was this:
find /u/temp -print | cpio -oBHcrc --quiet >/u/test.cpio
