[appltest@test ~]$ XXC_EMP.fmb $AU_TOP/forms/US
-bash: XXC_EMP.fmb: command not found


I have XXC_EMP.fmb and XXC_EMP.fmx and i want to move XXC_EMP.fmb to $AU_TOP/forms/US Path.

So,i used some commands to move the form one path to another path in the same server.

[appltest@test ~]$ cd $ONT_TOP/forms/US
[appltest@test US]$ ls XXMZ_EMP_FOLDER_FRM.fmb XXMZ_EMP_FOLDER_FRM.fmx*
XXMZ_EMP_FOLDER_FRM.fmb  XXMZ_EMP_FOLDER_FRM.fmx

[appltest@test US]$ echo $AU_TOP/forms/US
/u01/appltest/apps/apps_st/appl/au/12.0.0/forms/US
[appltest@test US]$ mv XXMZ_EMP_FOLDER_FRM.fmb /u01/appltest/apps/apps_st/appl/au/12.0.0/forms/US
[appltest@test US]$ XXMZ_EMP_FOLDER_FRM.fmb $AU_TOP/forms/US
-bash: XXMZ_EMP_FOLDER_FRM.fmb: command not found




And i paste the /u01/appltest/apps/apps_st/appl/au/12.0.0/forms/US Path to get the .fmb files and i am getting below error

Cannot get real path for '/u01/appltest/apps/apps_st/appl/au/12.0.0/forms/US:'.
No such file or directory.
Error code: 2
Error message from server: No such file
Request code: 16


Please help

Why do you ask for help, and then not run the command I gave you? Very odd behaviour.

Thank you for (finally) letting me help you.

This, /u01/appltest/apps/apps_st/appl/au/12.0.0/forms/US, is not a directory. It is a file. Somehow, you have managed to remove the directory and its contents, and replace it with a file. Or to put it another way, you have severely damaged your EBS installation. Better delete the file, and extract the directory and its contents from a backup.

Teaching you to restore files from backup is beyond the scope of an Oracle forum. Talk to your sys admin. Show him this topic: he will understand.
