Standard error ===========================
$AW_HOME/bin/sqloper.ini: line 13: cd: HOME not set

Applications Manager does not set a HOME variable. This is set on the OS level. If a custom script calls for a HOME variable, a HOME variable must be defined and set in the environment. This applies to all OS level or customer environment variables.

Applications Manager specific environment variables are set via the $AW_HOME/site/sosite or %AW_HOME%\site\sosite.bat files.
