Thanks Steve and Scott for your suggestions. They helped me figure out the
problem.
I added the ./server but it still didn't find it. Then I recalled that the
serve module had been installed globally.
So I changed to
/QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/nodejs10/bin/serve -s build -l 8010
and the command is found.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Rob,

QShell (like all Unix shells) searches in your PATH to find the program
to run. It is looking for a program named 'serve', but cannot find it
in your PATH. You haven't told us what the PATH is... I suspect its
different in the batch job vs. the interactive one.

If the goal is to run the 'serve' command from the
/home/RROGERSON/node/vlegacireactjs directory, then you should change
the code to this:

./serve -s build -l 8010

The ./ tells it to look in the current directory (i.e. the one you
switched to with the prior 'cd' command) rather than use the PATH to
find the program.

Good luck!

When I run a command/program interactively in Qshell it runs
successfully.
But when I try to run this in start.sh it fails with Command serve not
found.

I start an interactive Qshell session.

STRQSH
$ cd node/vlegacireactjs
$ serve -s build -l 8010

The above starts a react server which I confirm is reachable when I point
my browser at port 8010. I am trying to run a program that will start the
server in batch.

SBMJOB CMD(QSH CMD('/home/RROGERSON/node/vlegacireactjs/start.sh')) +
JOB(NODE_REACT) JOBQ(QS36EVOKE) CPYENVVAR(*YES)

And then start.sh contains

#1/usr/bin/sh
cd /home/RROGERSON/node/vlegacireactjs
serve -s build -l 8010

The job NODE_REACT fails (as seen in the QPRINT spool file) with Command
serve not found .

Does anyone know what I have to add to start.sh to get this to run?

Thanks,

Rob
