make sure you have write permissions to
/opt/bea/wls61/config/dev05/batch_automation/batchPolicy/logs directory

also try to source ".profile" of the user (with which the script is to be run)
in the script itself.

for e.g
#! /bin/ksh
cd <user_home_directory or the location where .profile is kept>
. .profile

.
.
remaining script

Hi

It has write permission .

Following is the .profile entry that I can locate:


Path /etc/.profile
***********************************
# The profile that all logins get before using their own .profile.

trap "" 2 3
export LOGNAME PATH

if [ "$TERM" = "" ]
then
if /bin/i386
then
TERM=sun-color
else
TERM=sun
fi
export TERM
fi

# Login and -su shells get /etc/profile services.
# -rsh is given its environment in its .profile.

case "$0" in
-sh | -ksh | -jsh)

if [ ! -f .hushlogin ]
then
/usr/sbin/quota
# Allow the user to break the Message-Of-The-Day only.
trap "trap '' 2" 2
/bin/cat -s /etc/motd
trap "" 2

/bin/mail -E
case $? in
0)
echo "You have new mail."
;;
2)
echo "You have mail."
;;
esac
fi
esac

umask 022
trap 2 3

*************

Now can u guide me how to proceed. I cannot understand ur .profile concept.
