Thanks.  It did fail again but I'm sure that is why.  I added both the
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH line and the ./ in front of dbcopy.
 
I'll give it another run tonight.
 
Thanks for all the help.

You forgot the ./ in front of dbcopy 
 
IF you go the PATH route, the TID says to use export in front of the 
LD_.... 
 
I stuck with the cd method in my scripts.

I added: 
 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/novell/groupwise/agents/lib 
 
to the top of my script and dbcopy still did not run. 
 
So I changed the script to cd into the directory first: 
 
cd /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/bin/ 
dbcopy -d /media/nss/GWVOL/fvlhs/ /media/nss/BACKUPVOL/gwbackup/fvlhs/

 
 
I'll see if it runs tonight.

This is not a GroupWise specific env var.  It’s the path for the Linux

dynamic library loader (ld.so) to look for additional runtime libraries

to load.

I use BackupPC to get it to my backup server.  Something has happened 
and I cannot get dbcopy to run from cron.   I'm assuming it is related

to the R2 upgrade.

crontab.  Same results.  /var/log/messages shows they are running, but

dbcopy does nothing.
