I have configured my cron job on a solaris box to execute the cvs update daily at 11:00 PM and do the build.
But it seems that cron is not able to execute the cvs update command. No error came though.

My shell script is something like:

/bin/sh -x /dev-webapp/build/pankaj.sh
echo 'bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb'
/bin/sh -x /dev-webapp/build/stopAll.sh

cd $APP_HOME/checkouts/applications
/bin/sh -x cvs -q update -A -d -r build-5
cd $APP_HOME/build

This script is working fine except the cvs update command. Even if i try just the cvs -q update -A -d -r build-5, result is same.
