You shouldn't go into /opt/hlr/trans/exp/expDB. It's not a directory, it's a script. That's why I asked to paste that exact command output.
It should give output like:
$ file /home/sulti/ 
/home/sulti/ a /usr/bin/python script text executable


Unless 'file' command does something different on Sun OS... What's exact OS distribution on that machine?

Better Smilie
Maybe the simpliest way to see it will be to display it on screen:
cat /opt/hlr/trans/exp/expDB

If cat isn't available try:
vi /opt/hlr/trans/exp/expDB

Then, if You can, paste it somewhere where I could read it Smilie eg Copy and Paste to Anywhere, unless it's not a very big script, then paste it here.

Ok, there's a file _expDB, so try:
cat /opt/hlr/trans/exp/_expDB

That's what I was afraid.. Try to run
/opt/hlr/trans/exp/expDB --help

to see if it has some commandline options...
