    Default zimbra, java and cron

    I've been struggling with this all day and it seems like a problem that someone must have already solved.

    I have a java program that updates zimbra based on data in an oracle database. It executes just fine at the command line and in in a bash shell script.

    When I call the script from cron it fails with the following error, although a simple java program in the same script will execute just fine.:
    # An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment:
    # SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x0638e976, pid=10301, tid=3086879648
    # Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (10.0-b22 mixed mode linux-x86)
    # Problematic frame:
    # V []
    # An error report file with more information is saved as:
    # /home/oracle/zimbra/hs_err_pid10301.log
    # If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:
    # HotSpot Virtual Machine Error Reporting Page

    Here is the script:

    cd ~oracle/zimbra

    export ORACLE_SID=prod
    export ORAENV_ASK=NO
    . /usr/local/bin/oraenv

    export ORAHOME=/oracle
    export PATH=/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/oracle/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/oracle/bin
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/oracle/lib:/opt/jdk1.6.0_06/jre/lib/i386/server/

    # set the classpath var.

    /opt/jdk1.6.0_06/bin/java -classpath ${CLASSPATH}:. show_date > update.log

    /opt/jdk1.6.0_06/bin/java -classpath ${CLASSPATH}:. update_zimbra >> update.log

    How do you call a java program that accesses zimbra from cron?

    i tend to use:

    su - zimbra -c 'some_command'
    su - zimbra -c ' tomcat restart'
    Thanks For any replies,

    Programs executed from cron have *no environment at all*; this is a common problem, Java or otherwise.

    Try setting TERM in your wrapper script, just for grins and giggles.
