my cron is giving me erro 127 while I try to run a script.

the system is HP-UX, the script is a simple make_tape_recovery command that Im able to run from shell.

anyone know if I have to setup something to make cron run this?

thanks

Error 127 means "Command not found"

You'll have to specify the full path to your command, like

* * * * * /path/to/make_tape_recovery ... ...

Please remember that cron doesn't set any PATH except for /bin and /usr/bin!
So if there are commands inside your script you should also call them by full path.
