RE: cannot spool the mounted standby database through cron job shell script. Any other suggestions?

Replace with
#!/bin/bash -x
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/sqlplus -s /nolog << EOF  (full path to SQL*Plus)

Replace with
40 15 * * * /app/oracle/sm/test.sh invest1 > /u01/app/oracle/cron.log 2>&1

Does this work and what does cron.log shows if it doesn't?

Subject: Re: cannot spool the mounted standby database through cron job shell 
script. Any other suggestions?

Hi All,
Thanks for the response. Here is the complete script. I did set the oracle_sid 
and oracle_home. There are no error messages. The spool file does not get 
created. If i run it from command prompt, i am able to get the spool file 
created. I tested this on 11gse1(linux) as well as 10gr2 EE(AIX). Also i tested 
this on a open database and even it does not create the file. So this has 
nothing to do with the status of the database. Can someone try it out for me 
and let me know if you are facing the same issue. I have all permissions to 
write/create files on the directory.

This is how my cronjob looks: 40 15 * * * /app/oracle/sm/test.sh invest1

#!/bin/bash
#sqplus will return last archive log applied result to the screen if manually 
run

SCRIPT_DIR=/u01/app/oracle/admin/escenic/standby
FULL_LOG_NAME=${SCRIPT_DIR}/test.log

export TARGET_SID="$1"
export TARGET_SID=`echo ${TARGET_SID} | sed -e 's/ //g'`
export TARGET_SID=`cat /etc/oratab | grep -i "${TARGET_SID}:"  | grep -v "^#" | 
cut -d : -f 1`
export ORACLE_SID=${TARGET_SID}
export ORACLE_HOME=`cat /etc/oratab | grep ${TARGET_SID}: | grep -v "^#" | cut 
-d : -f 2`

echo "OS->${ORACLE_SID} OH->${ORACLE_HOME}" >> ${FULL_LOG_NAME}
cd ${SCRIPT_DIR}
echo "PWD"`pwd` >> ${FULL_LOG_NAME}
echo "" >> ${FULL_LOG_NAME}
sqlplus -s /nolog << EOF
set head off
connect / as sysdba
spool abcd.log
select max(sequence#) max_seq from v\$log_history;
spool off
quit
EOF


cat test.log
