Re: run batch error

this is the IT equivalent of going to a mechanic and having the following conversation:

- my car makes a funny rattling sound when I drive it...
* OK can I take a look at it?
- No I didn't bring it with me
* ah well - not sure I can help you then

You get the point? You have a script that does something (which apparently involves a scp, but who knows what else) - you get an error message from it, and you want help fixing it, but you haven't shared the script

who knows *where* that error message comes from - could be anywthing - if I were to guess, I'd say there's some code in there that's assuming you are attached to a terminal, such as some login .profile sourcing which might come from soing a "su - user" somewhere in the script - but as you didn't share any details, its not easy to help any further...

Re: run batch error

and that's the whole script is it?

somehow I doubt it, as that appears to be half of a scp statement... posting fragments isn't going to work... please post the cron entry and the full script

Re: run batch error

Hi,

Can you upload your script ?

Re: run batch error

scp /tmp/test.ora edp_usr@192.168.0.2:/tmp

and that's what appears in cron is it?

I can see _no_ way that this would cause the message you are seeing, which makes me think there's more to your script than just this one line.

If you are not prepared to help yourself by providing the right information, you're unlikely to get a satisfactory outcome...

Re: run batch error

thx reply

the is really the script that I run at cron , but the message is happens in RH linux server ,

if the message is caused from the incorrect TERM setting , can I add the TERM setting to the batch job ? thx

Re: run batch error

ahh and we were just supposed to guess that were we?

So the googling on error message in question seems to indicate that it comes from the "tput" command, which again suggests that this comes from a login operation somewhere (like an entry bin a .profile or .bashrc or similar)

But as we are still flailing around trying to understand you end-to-end process, it's hard to say...

- you have a cron job that is a simple scp command... does that cron run on HP-UX or RedHat?

- *where* do you see the "No value for $TERM and no -T specified" message? at what point during the operation and in a log, or seomwhere else

Is HP-UX involved in this at all? If not you've posted in the wrong forum...
