Cronjob suddenly stopped working giving Crond Authentication Failure Error.
I have set up my cron job for Oracle User. It was
working fine. But After changing the cron, it ran
for the first time. Then the next time, it throws
the below error:
crond: Authentication Failure
I tried the following work arounds:
1) Checked the cronjob with other users
2) Restarted the crond service.
3) Cleared all the entries in the Oracle user, and
just tried using a simple touch command to test
4) checked visudo extries also.
After trying out all the above work arounds, iam
unable to run the cronjob.
Thanks in Advance :-)
