My coldtofrozenscript on linux is totaly ignored, I tweaked the indexes.conf (a few warmbuckets and small total index) and the data is nicely deleted from cold....

How can I see why the coldtofrozen script isnt working?

Configed exactly like the manual,,,

[<index>]
coldToFrozenScript = /opt/splunk/bin/compressedExport.sh

in

compressedExport.sh I only set the path to the archivelocation

cp -r "$1" /opt/fl_virtual_san 

you mean a test dir instead of a file right? I'have made dir /opt/foo for testing and ran:

/opt$ /opt/splunk/bin/compressedExport.sh /opt/foo

cp -r "$1" /opt/fl_virtual_san 

*** /opt/foo: directory ***

No files anywhere?

Shouldn't be, since the ( ... ) indicates the cd happens in a subshell, so the next command doesn't go to the directory. Furthermore, the path should be absolute for the cp command, so it shouldn't matter. The error indicates that it cp won't copy because /opt/foo is a directory. -r should deal with that. That error message does look strange, and I'm not sure which command is generating it.

I think your problem is that you cd into the directory, then you try to copy the directory from the wrong location. Change it to this:
gzip $1/*tsidx
cp -r $1 /opt/fl_virtual_san/

What are the contents of compressedExport.sh? Can you verify that it is executable? Also, try running that script by hand under the same user as splunk:

touch /tmp/foo
/opt/splunk/bin/compressedExport.sh /tmp/foo
