Hi,

I created a crontab file that starts up my oracle instace at a particular time specified in the file.

The start.sh script resides on /home/oracle/ and I edited my crontab as follows:
30 12 * * * /home/oracle/start.sh -- to run @ 12:30 everyday.

Here is the content of start.sh script:
===========================
#!/bin/bash

# Title: start.sh

cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
./sqlplus /nolog <<EOF
conn /as sysdba;
startup;
EOF
============================

But when the script runs I get the error below:
/home/oracle/start.sh: line 6: ./sqlplus: No such file or directory

Again, when I run the same script (start.sh) from shell it runs successfully.
[oracle@kerrysson ~] ./start.sh --- run successfully.

Please what could be the solution here? Put me through please.

Thanks and regards,

Creems

In start.sh do the following as very first command & inspect results after invoking via cron & compare to interactive

env | sort -o /tmp/oracle.env

You need to set the environment variables inside the script to run the script as cron job. ie., you must set ORACLE_SID and ORACLE_HOME inside the script right after the "#!/bin/bash"; before invoking any other commands.
