Hello all,
I am trying to setup a job in crontab to run book_info script, but the problem is cron is giving me errors. I am able to run the script manually on command line but not being able to run it through crontab. At first cron complained of "sqlplus not found", but when I gave path to sqlplus explicitly I am receiving following errors:

Application book_info Script Running,
Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus

I do see sp1us.msb file in my $ORACLE_HOME/sqlplus directory. I do not have $ORACLE_SID path set up. Do I need it to be set? If so what should it be? Please let me know if I should check anything else to fix this problem.

Thank you for your time,
Nishi

I fixed this problem. I had to explicitly set $ORACLE_HOME path in my script.

Hi Nishi. I just did a small writeup on how I write my shell scripts to call SQL PLus. My shell scripts are usually designed to be called through cron and include a section on setting up the PATH and other environment variables.

My little writeup is at <a href="http://timarcher.com/?q=node/48">http://timarcher.com/?q=node/48</a>

It also shows you how to pass shell variables into SQL Plus and how to get the return code from SQL Plus for use in your shell script.
