[bash] cannot see sub directory on backups!!

hello all,

I updated an Apple PM g4 from 10.2.8 to 10,3.9 OS X version.

I scheduled some tasks on my cron tab (in fact the same cron tab used on 10,2.8).

This cron makes a 'rendundant' back up of the back up files saved in a Volume (a remote apple g5 machine).

this is the path:

/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Backups

the terminal application autofill help me to reach this path but, when I try to move to a sub dir (we can call it xxx) with

cd xxx command, the out put notify me that xxx doesn't exists! (I know this is not true).

I try the same thing on a 10.2.8 eMac and the same path works properly!!!

Could you help me to understand this?

This directory is the only one which shows me this behaviour.. the others (xslt-templates-files included) are reachable and I can copy them from G5 to G4!!

PS: filemaker server adv. 8 on G5 10.4.2

Some ideas:

1. I think the default login shell changed from 10.2 to 10.3 (to bash or something?) You might need some syntax changes in your bash script? Note that cron jobs often run under a different shell than Terminal logins.

2. Filename quoting? Since you have spaces in the filename, be careful of escaping these. Either quote the whole thing "A filename with spaces" or escape it properly , e.g. A Filename with spaces
