RE

When you run the script from . What user are you? What are the environment variables for that user. Type env at the prompt. It should give you the variables that are set. What is the PATH of the user that you use to exe the script.

What directory is the script in? What are the directory permissions of directory that the script is in?

Put the script in a directory that is in your PATH line /usr/local/bin or

Let me know
I run the script from the command line use root. PATH=/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
the directory the script in is /export/home/cvaradm/
the permission:
2 -rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 572 Apr 16 17:59 tcupsbmt

I put the script in /usr/bin, after run, it still show the same error message.

do you think any where I need to improve?
thanks!

What happen if you do the following?

1 - create a new script /opt/CV/etc/script/my_tcupsbmt.sh

#!/bin/ksh
. /etc/profile
. /.profile


/usr/bin/find /cvdata/download/image/A -name 'tcup*' \
| awk -F'/' '{print $6}'| xargs -i /opt/CV/etc/script/tcupsbmt \
/cvdata/download/image/A {} IMGREQ FILE 0x10 \ 1>>/var/log/tcup.log 2>>/var/log/tcup_error.log


exit 0

2- chmod 0755 /opt/CV/etc/script/my_tcupsbmt.sh

3- comment the cron job
01,11,36,50 * * * * find /cvdata/download/image/A -name 'tcup*' |awk -F'/' '{print $6}'| xargs -i /opt/CV/etc/script/tcupsbmt /cvdata/download/image/A {} IMGREQ FILE 0x10 > /var/log/tcup.log 2> /var/log/tcup_error.log

4- Add the cron Job
01,11,36,50 * * * * /opt/CV/etc/script/my_tcupsbmt.sh

Is the same message?. Hugo

1- Comment the cron Job

2. Try the same script whit the following modifications:

#!/bin/ksh

#normally VERBOSE is an environment variable
VERBOSE=Yes

if [ "$VERBOSE" = "Yes" ]
then
set -x
TTY=`tty`
else
TTY=/dev/null
fi

LOG=/var/log/tcup_error.log

. /etc/profile
. /.profile


/usr/bin/find /cvdata/download/image/A -name 'tcup*' \
| awk -F'/' '{print $6}'| while read param
do
cod_ret=0
/opt/CV/etc/script/tcupsbmt /cvdata/download/image/A $param IMGREQ FILE 0x10 |tee -a $LOG 1>>$TTY 2>>&1
cod_ret=$?
echo "When executing the tcupsbmt /cvdata/download/image/A $param IMGREQ FILE 0x10 " |tee -a $LOG 1>>$TTY 2>>&1
echo "the return code was $cod_ret" |tee -a $LOG 1>>$TTY 2>>&1

done

exit 0

3- Add the environment definitions in your script (tcupsbmt) and a set -x
---------------
. /etc/profile
. /.profile
set -x

4- Try the script from the command line an if OK, uncomment the cron Job.

Note: If possible see and paste the /tcup_error.log and the last mail message of the root user.

Hi, Hugo,

I tried the script you give me, when I run it on command line, give me the following message:

apcore03(76): my_tcupsbmt.sh

TTY=/dev/pts/41
+ LOG=/var/log/tcup_error.log

It couldn't execute. Any comments?

The environments in /etc/profile was loaded well, but when
the script try to load the /.profile settings the script fail. I
think that you need to review the /.profile file (near the export PATH declaration).

Another way to try to resolve the problem is to set the environment separately.

1- comment the the linesthe following lines in both scripts:
. /etc/profile
. /.profile

2- if the output of "env |grep -i cv" display lines
insert and export those lines in the .sh (script) following the set -x declaration.

3- Insert the Following to Lines in both scripts
PATH=$PATH:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X/bin:/usr/ucb:/pub/public/sparc-sun-solaris2.7/bin:/IA/pub/GNU/sparc-sun-solaris2.7/bin:/opt/ARCHIVE/bin/sparc-sun-solaris2.7:/opt/ARCHIVE/etc/script:/opt/ARCHIVE/etc/script/sqls:/opt/ARCHIVE/etc/script/utils:/opt/ARCHIVE/etc/script/startup:/opt/ARCHIVE/etc/script/shutdown:/opt/ARCHIVE/etc/script/menu:/opt/ARCHIVE/etc/script/perl:/opt/CV/bin/sparc-sun-solaris2.7:/opt/CV/etc/script:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/sbin:/export/home/cvaradm/bin:/usr/java/lib:/usr/java1.2/bin:/opt/WV/bin/sparc-sun-solaris2.7:/ora00/app/oracle/product/8.0.5/bin:/ora00/app/oracle/admin/scripts:/ora00/app/oracle/product/8.0.5/bin:/opt/ARCHIVE/masterdb/scripts/stat_rep:/usr/dt/bin:/usr/openwin/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/ucb:/usr/sbin:/usr/opt/SUNWmd/sbin:/usr/bin/nsr

export PATH

(Similar PATH Definition is in the /.profile)

No surrenders, give him it fights that for sure you will win him.
