Hi there. I am using the exp command to backup my database into a dump file. When i execute the command from the cli it works. When i try to execute it via crontab it give me the following error. Any help would be appriciated. To resolve i have alredy set the $ORACLE_HOME but still the problem doesnt resolve.
The command is below
exp Full=y File=/u01/SequelMedBackups/BackupSet-1/Exports/ExpEver10gFull_FRI.dmp log=/u01/SequelMedBackups/BackupSet-1/Exports/ExpEver10gFull_FRI.log buffer=999999 Direct=y userid=system/sequel

The error is below:
