Daily.sh Failing on New Install

Good afternoon everyone!

I have a fresh install of LibreNMS on Debian 12. I migrated the data from my previous install and everything appeared to be working fine yesterday. Today, however, I was experiencing some difficulties with weathermapper (not related to this problem). As part of troubleshooting that I ran validate.php, which led to the following output:

Make sure your daily.sh cron is running and run ./daily.sh by hand to see if there are any errors.

My cron.d/librenms is as follows:
@daily * * * * librenms /opt/librenms/daily.sh >> /dev/null 2>&1

When I try to manually run daily.sh, I get the following error:

./daily.sh: 34: source: not found
./daily.sh: 52: Syntax error: “(” unexpected (expecting “}”)

I am running both the validate.php and daily.sh as librenms user.

Any help is appreciated.

What is the configured shell for user LibreNMS? It needs to be /bin/bash. It’s probably something else now (I’m guessing /bin/sh)

sudo usermod -s /bin/bash librenms

After that logout before trying again.

root@nuc:/# su librenms --shell=/bin/sh
$ source ~/.env
sh: 1: source: not found
root@nuc:/# su librenms --shell=/bin/bash
librenms@nuc:/$ source ~/.env


I have performed the recommended task and even replicated what you did with verifying that it went to a blank line when you typed in source ~/.env. However, I am still getting the error running daily.sh.

librenms@LibreNMS:~$ librenms@LibreNMS:~$ source ~/.env
librenms@LibreNMS:~$ sh ./daily.sh
./daily.sh: 34: source: not found
./daily.sh: 52: Syntax error: “(” unexpected (expecting “}”)


I finally got it work. For some reason I was getting a non-printed error that /root/.bashrc access was denied. I had to add the user to the sudoers list and execute the daily.sh with the command su librenms -c “/opt/librenms/daily.sh” in order to get it to work manually. I have updated my cron task accordingly and we will see if it works tonight at midnight.
