You aren't giving us much of a clue, if "they still won't run" surely the shell or something is printing some kind of error, I suggest posting

(a) the attributes of the file, eg "ls -ld filename"

(b) how you try and run the script

(c) the output on the screen when you do try

I am going to use the script "bounceomni" as an example:

Here are the file attributes:

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root sys 256 Sept 20 02:56 bounceomi

This script is supposed to stop and then start the daemons for HP Omniback.

On the older machines, all you have to do is type

# bounceomni

and it works just fine.

If I try it on a new one, I get

# bounceomni
/sbin/sh: bounceomni: not found

I'm certainly no expert, but it seems like something changed in the file when I put it on these new machines via FTP.

Please tell me if there's any other information I could post that would help.

It's not on the PATH. Do the following in working and non-working environments:

Code:
echo $PATH

try

Code:
./bounceomni

Can you tell me what that first command will do? Why do I not have to type that on the older machines??

The echo $PATH merely shows you the contents of that environment variable.

The older machine may have the PATH configured differently, you say the new machines are fresh installs of the operating system. Do echo $PATH on both machines was a clue to seeing what was different between the environments.

Does this help, make a difference, solve the problem?

Apparently all I had to do was type

# /tapescripts/<script name>

instead of just the script name. I still want to know how I can fix the new ones to behave like the old ones so I don't have to type that, but for now I am thrilled. Thanks so much for your help!!!

You need to find where your user (root?) has it's environment setup at login.
