I have a short script for Flexbackup ;
# Backup using Flexbackup
/bin/rm -f /data/IT/Backup_Log/data*
/usr/local/bin/flexbackup -dir /data
/usr/bin/mt -f /dev/sa0 rewind
/usr/bin/mt -f /dev/sa0 offline
I put this in /usr/bin/ and made exec
In crontab I put ;
# Flexbackup Nightly Backup Job
0 2 * * 1-5 root /usr/bin/backup
If I run the script manually at the prompt
it works perfectly and a new log is written
to /data/IT/Backup_Log/ - Great !
$logdir = '/data/IT/Backup_Log'; # directory for log files)
If cron runs it, the old log is rm'ed but no new one is written ???
Is it something to do with paths / perms ?
Any help ?
