I have below command in one of my script -

dirs=( $(/usr/bin/find -L /home/mumbaikar/data -maxdepth 1 -type d -printf '%P\n') )

/home/mumbaikar/data is a symlink which points to a folder which has many subdirectories. I want to push this list of subdirectories in the array variable "dirs". Howevere, when I run the script manually it works fine. The find command doesn't execute when the script is scheduled to run thru cron. any ideas?
