Running the Script in Background.


Pls. help on this to run the script in background.
I have a script to run the informatica workflows using PMCMD in script.

Say the script name is & Parameters to the script is Y Y Y Y

The no of parameters to the bove script is 4. all are going to be a flags. Each flag will run different workflows in informatica thru PMCMD. Based on the status of the first flag (i.e informatica Workflow) it will run the next thru the 2nd flag and so on......

Now the script is working fine when i run it like sh Y Y Y Y

This takes more than 2 hours. Is there any possibility to run it in background???

I checked with sh Y Y Y Y &
It is not working fine.

Experts pls share your thoughts to fix this issue.
