Thanks for responding. I'm new to linux and I am using CentOS which I

run in ANY script.
If I run:
The service runs fine as it should.
However, if I create a script such as:
... it does not run.
If I do the same thing with a standard console app, the app starts
regardless if I invoke from commandline or through script.
