Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

not found


This message indicates that the Bourne shell could not find the program name given as a command.


Check the form and spelling of the command line. If that data looks correct, do a echo $PATH to see if the user's search path is correct. When communications are garbled, it is possible to unset a search path to such an extent that only built-in shell commands are available. Below is a command to reset a basic search path:

$ PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/openwin/bin:.
If the search path looks correct, check the directory contents along the search path for missing programs or directories that are not mounted.
