Re: Having trouble with a SMB share and the CP command

Below is the text of the script (only the paths are modified). I run this exact command manually and it works. I run the script and I get the error.


#!/bin/bash
#
#backs up important files
#
cp /path/to/local/file /smb/share/path

Having trouble with a SMB share and the CP command

I'd like to backup a few configuration files on my CentOS 4 system to my remote windows share (on the same network segment). Currently the share is permanently mounted into the Linux filesystem via Samba and the /etc/fstab. When I issue the command cp /source/file/name /destination/file/name the fil...

Re: First crontab job

I changed the /etc/selinux/config. I changed it to permissive. I also added the SHELL=/bin/bash statement into the crontab. I still get the same two errors (could not open X file and not recognized -u on the ftp command). What does it take to get the crontab to run a script with the EXACT same permi...

Re: First crontab job

I think I am running SELINUX. How can I disable it or at least disable the "enforcement mode"?

Re: First crontab job

Specifying the full path cleared up the file errors, but not all of them. (1) can't open a local file and (2) doesn't recognize the -u option on the ftp command (which is necessary for my configuration). What I don't understand is why the script runs perfectly with ./ but has these errors when it's ...

Re: First crontab job

1. There was a terminal attached. That is why I expected to see the echo and did not expect it to mail to root.

2. The script technically runs, it's just that everything fails. It says each file does not exists. Maybe I should specify the full path to each file and see if that works.
