Expect with Cron failed
Posted by mengatus (mengatus), 30 October 2007I have a expect script using ftp to put a file into the remote system.
I scheduled a cron job to run the expect script everyday.
The expect script is running fine under command line, but not in cron environment.
The error happened on spawn ftp $hostName
after certain time: ftp: connection timed out.
Is there anything I need to setup for cron environment?
Thanks very much for any help.
Posted by mengatus (mengatus), 30 October 2007I think I fixed that problem.
I put full path of ftp and it worked.
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 30 October 2007Yes ... that would be it; the cron and the command line current directories and paths can be different ...
