    Unanswered: crontab db2

    hi to all

    I have seen this error in the db2 forum but not a finalized resolution

    SQL10007N Message "-1390" could not be retrieved.

    here is my problem:

    I am using Udb 7.2 on Red Hat Linux v6.2.

    I created a crontab entry for my script under the db2 user.

    crontab entry:

    37 16 * * 1-5 /kal/db2inst1/db2_backup

    where dia_backup is my script.

    Contents of the dia_backup script:

    /home/db2inst3/sqllib/bin/db2 force applications all
    /home/db2inst3/sqllib/bin/db2 backup db dia to '/data/arraya/bck'

    Whenever the job is executed from the crontab it fails with the above error.

    If I run the script from the os command line it works.

    Any suggestions?

    I verified that my DB2INSTANCE paramter is set and I have also
    checked the file permissions for where the backup file is
    suppose to end up.

    pl tell me...

    did you verify the DB2INSTANCE is set WITHIN the scope of the crontab-script ? (or did you only check on the commandline ?)

    i suggest to extend your script to check it out
    echo "DB2INSTANCE is: $DB2INSTANCE" > /tmp/db2_backup.log
    home/db2inst3/sqllib/bin/db2 force applications all
    /home/db2inst3/sqllib/bin/db2 backup db dia to '/data/arraya/bck'

    You need to set your environment variables, I would put the command in a script, that loads your profile then just execute the script.

    load env variables
    run commands
