That did it!  Thanks for all your help.  I'm getting good backups
again.

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.

been running dbcopy as a cron job for years to get a clean backup 
before  
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.

so the script is running, but just bypassing the dbcopy lines.

empty.

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

 
dbcopy does nothing.
