[LDM #ROJ-852250]: Cron job can't reset LDM registry?



Hi Chris and Bob,

No worries.

I now (as of a minute ago) think I have a handle on why you were having
a problem running 'ldmadmin' from cron.  The problem was indeed caused by
a non-standard installation of the LDM.  Here is the code in the 'ldmadmin'
script that was causing the problem:

$ldmhome = "$ENV{'LDMHOME'}";
if (!$ldmhome) {
    $ldmhome = "/local/ldm";
}

srand;  # called once at start

# Some parameters used by this script:
$progname = "ldmadmin";
$feedset = "ANY";
chop($os = `uname -s`);
chop($release = `uname -r`);
$begin = 19700101;
$end = 30000101;
$lock_file = "$ldmhome/.ldmadmin.lck";
$pid_file = "$ldmhome/ldmd.pid";
$line_prefix = "";
$pqact_conf_option = 0;

# Ensure that the utilities of this version are favored
$ENV{'PATH'} = "$ldmhome/ldm-6.13.6/bin:$ENV{'PATH'}";

The last line in ldmadmin snippit is possibly the culprit
since it assumes that there is a ~ldm/ldm-6.13.6/bin directory,
and your installation did not have one.  It seems to me that this
should still have worked since your existing PATH did have the
~ldm/bin directory in it, but...

Out of curiosity:  can you tell me which cron-initiated 'ldmadmin'
invocation was causing the errors previously?

Thanks in advance...

Cheers,

Tom
