If they work from the cmd line, what method is being used to run them when they don't work?

I think this was asked, but I didn't see an answer.

Are they being run on the same server? or a different server?

If they run from the cmd line, you can use 'at' to run the job once for some future time, and
examine the script in /var/spool/cron to see how the environment variable(s) differ from what
is being set up in the script.
