Crontab issue


We have configured a script to be run at specific time using crontab.

Code:
# crontab -l
15 11 * * * VM_Count_V4.sh
as per the crontab entry script should run every day 11.15 a.m

Every time when the script is executed i get a mail but when i run it using crontab it doesn't send any mail.

However when i execute it manually i get the mails.

Even the execution is getting logged in cron log.

Code:
/var/log/cron
Mar 17 11:15:01 XXXX crond[11708]: (root) CMD (VM_Count_V4.sh)
Please suggest.

Hi,

Check the PATH content when running from cron and when running manually.

I guess it's the issue.

You were right thanks for helping.
