hadbm Command Fails: command not found


The hadbm command can be run from the current directory, or you can set the search PATH to access the hadb commands from anywhere, which is much more convenient. The error, “hadbm: Command not found,” indicates that neither of these conditions has been met.

Solution 1

cd to the directory that contains the hadbm command and run it from there:

cd install_dir/SUNWhadb/4/bin/

Solution 2

Use the full path to invoke the hadbm command:


Solution 3

You can use the hadbm command from anywhere by setting the PATH variable. Instructions for setting the PATH variable are contained in the “Preparing for HADB Setup” chapter of the Sun Java System Application Server 8.2 Installation Guide.

To verify that the PATH settings are correct, run the following commands:

which asadmin
which hadbm

These commands should echo the paths to the utilities.
