problem with cronjob and system commnd

Dear All,

Need your help with respect to the cronjob setup in Solaris and Undo checkout operation in Clearcase using perl script.
I have a cronjob and it is working fine, but problem is, system command in perl script is not working as per requirement.
Please find the snipped, of code as below for your kind reference. :

if($Difference > 15 )
&send_mail($Xid_Value, $View_Name, $File_2_Uncheckout, $Difference, $Vobs ); # this sends the mail, and everyting works fine.
system ("/usr/atria/bin/cleartool unco -keep $File_2_Uncheckout"); # $File_2_Uncheckout is the complete path for the file to be undo check out.

If the $Difference value is greater than 15, it sends the mail to user. But the second line
system command is not working as per the behavior, due to which undo check out operation is not performed.

And the cronjob setup is as below.

25 12 * * * /usr/atria/bin/cleartool setview -exec /vobs/vobs_verif/tools/DB_cronjobs/ view_MAIN

I am getting the message as below in cronjob output.

Your "cron" job on serting
/usr/atria/bin/cleartool setview -exec /vobs/vobs_verif/tools/DB_cronjobs/ view_MAIN

produced the following output:

cleartool: Error: Element name not found: "/view/view_LDPACE6R05/vobs/vobs_verif/devices/LDPACE6R05/M3/SYS1/module/module.h".

Your will be appreciated.

The paths look good; perhaps something else in the environment is causing the problem. You could see if this is the case by using a shell script wrapper to simulate the login process. The -l on #! /bin/bash -l is a letter l not a number 1:
#! /bin/bash -l
<full path to>/
