Hi ranchers,
I am quiet new to this thing. So please help!!
I have added a new entry to the root cronjob to run a shell script. The shell script runs fine on its own. But when I scheduled it to run every minute (for testing if it runs) on the cronjob, it didn't work! I have try many google search and man help, nothing seems to help.
More details, when I updated the crontab file, it saved and shows my entry via crontab -l. When I save the file, it gives me the message indicating it is saved (vi - ### charaters and stuff), but didn't say my entry is loaded in like it used to (this is on a different machine btw but both UNIX). I have a vague memory that there is a setting whether you want the crontab to reload everytime the file is updated or not. I am wondering, how do you reload it without changing the setting??? I am using Solaris.
Thank you!
