Lightbulb Problem executing a script

Hi Friends,
When I try to execute one of my script script1.shl, I am getting the error message as "/tmp/sh1871978.13: cannot create" .

I could not find the specified sh* file in the /tmp directory and I also checked the disk space of /tmp and it is only 60% filled.

Please help me on identifying the cause of the problem.

Check the permission of /tmp

Can you post the script?

I cannot as it is too big. But this is happening for all the scripts which is trying to write to the /tmp direcrory. Looks like a permission issue!

Hi Everybody,
Thanks a lot, the permission for /tmp has been changed with the help of the admin.
