Add the users you want to have access to CRON, into /etc/cron.allow.

I add the user "oracle" in /etc/cron.allow from root user.
now I ran the command "crontab -e", result is as follow:

You (oracle) are not allowed to use this program (crontab)
see crontab(1) for more information.

What can I do now, please guide me.

Thanks & regards,
Rana Abdul Wahid
