Login as xilinx cannot execute the command mode script

I encountered the following problem.

If I login as xilinx, it has problem to execute the following command on PYNQ-Z1. Is it normal ? For batch mode executing on PYNQ-ZQ, does it mean it requires to login as root ? Or how do you usually execute the batch script in command mode in PYNQ-Z1 ? Thanks
