Error: Internal system error: Unable to initialize standard output file

Hey guys, need some help. Running AIX Version 5.2 and one of our cron jobs is writing errors to a log file. Any ideas on the following error message.

Error: Internal system error: Unable to initialize standard output file

I'm guessing more info might be needed, so let me know.

Thanks

cron jobs do not have a tty associated with them.
What does the cron entry look like?

Not just cron

After my post I tried to execute the script manually and the same error messages are still written to the log.

Is there something wrong with the following syntax? I have never worked with COBOL before so this line doesn't mean much to me.

icrun -C n -q AM231X/B >> /usr/local/bin/ai_sp_list 2>&1
