    Question

    Hi all,
    I'm trying to get a unix backup script to work - oravis_backup.sh, but when I run it (logged in as root) it returns "oravis_backup.sh: not found". I am calling the script as follows:

    oravis_backup.sh > oravis_backup_31May01.log 2>&1 and the file itself looks like....

    # shut down all applications/listeners etc
    su oravis -c "/export/home/oravis/scripts/vis_all_stop.sh"
    #
    #tape=/dev/rmt/0n
    #
    # Rewind the tape for a complete backup
    mt -f /dev/rmt/0 rewind
    #
    # Use ufsdump for backup
    #
    /usr/sbin/ufsdump 0f /dev/rmt/0cn /dbs/oradb2/visdata
    /usr/sbin/ufsdump 0f /dev/rmt/0cn /dbs/oradb3/visdata
    /usr/sbin/ufsdump 0f /dev/rmt/0cn /dba/app/oracle/admin
    /usr/sbin/ufsdump 0f /dev/rmt/0cn /opt/appl/oracle
    /usr/sbin/ufsdump 0f /dev/rmt/0cn /export/home/oravis
    #
    #
    # Rewind the tape and put offline
    # mt -f /dev/rmt/0 rewoffl
    su oravis -c "/export/home/oravis/scripts/vis_all_start.sh"

    ...both the .sh files mentioned above exist in the same directory and I've changed the permissions using chmod to 777.

    Any clues on this one??

    Thanks,
    audere

    When you log in as root, the '.' is not in you PATH. ( security )

    So you have to tell the shell where the script is.

    Try
    ./oravis_backup.sh > oravis_backup_31May01.log 2>&1

    or ( and maybe better )

    full_path/oravis_backup.sh > full_path/oravis_backup_31May01.log 2>&1
