/bin/sh: : not found error


When i run the shell script in Solaris, i am getting the below error.

/bin/sh: Test.sh: not found

I have tried including "#!/bin/bash" , did not work,
tried with #!/bin/ksh , did not work,
tried without the above include in the script, but still did not work.

Please help me to find the solution for this.

Thank you.

I have tried with..

echo "1, cronjobs check"

echo "2, cronjobs check"

echo "1, cronjobs check"

echo "2, cronjobs check"

In the same server, same script is working fine with another user.

if the script is not in your path then you may get this error message.
you must precede with ./ when executing the script from the current working directory.
verify that it has execute permission. if not,
run this command to give execute permission
chmod +x test.sh

 . ~/.bash_profile
