Hi,

The following script works fine on all worksation when it's start manually or if I run it line by line manually.

If I would like to run it on crontab, the following line
	"/usr/bin/yum -y install VMware-Player-2.5.1-126130.x86_64" 
not install the new release of vmplayer with no errors.



#!/bin/bash

SHELL=/bin/bash
export SHELL

/etc/init.d/vmware  stop

/usr/bin/yum -y remove VMwarePlayer.x86_64
/usr/bin/yum -y remove VMware-Player.x86_64

/usr/bin/yum -y install VMware-Player-2.5.1-126130.x86_64

/usr/bin/vmware-networks --stop
/usr/bin/vmware-networks --migrate-network-settings /vmware/virtualmachine
/usr/bin/vmware-networks --start

/sbin/chkconfig --level 345 vmware on

When you say "I run this script by hand", do you mean run the script itself or each line of the script as you showed above?
Did you try to redirect stdout/stderr to files to see what is going on?
