Following a perl file :
//mBackup
#!/usr/bin/perl
...
...
my $cmd1 = "attr -s svnVer -V 13716 $$archiveName"; #my command

my $result1 = execute_command($cmd1);

print LOG "svnVer set : $result1 on $$archiveName \n";
------

I do see that the $result1 is set as 0. But when i query the file using
attr -g svnVer $$archiveName, i get:

attr_get: No data available
Could not get "svnVer" for /es/ss.bkup.3.0.10May13_061459.tgz

How did you assign a scalar reference to $archiveName?
Did you mean
my $cmd1 = 'attr -s svnVer -V 13716 $$archiveName';


my $result1 = execute_command($cmd1);
How did you declare sub execute_command?

Actually I copied the lines from already existing code..

    my $cmd = "cd $backup::tempDir; /bin/tar zcf $$archiveName $archives";
    my $result = execute_command($cmd);

#The above execution of command is successful. SO I used it to do my job. And all these 4 lines are consecutive lines. SO no access issues....

    my $cmd1 = "attr -s svnVer -V 13716 $$archiveName";
    my $result1 = execute_command($cmd1);

What is the already existing code that sets $archiveName?
What is the already existing code that declares sub  execute_command?
What do you get if you
  print $cmd1;
