Disable cronjob


Hi, I'm running a SuSE 7.3 server.

Every week I get a notice that the server is going to run the cronjobs.

But I don't want to run any scheduled stuff. How do I disable this and how can I see what is scheduled?

Well, I believe that if you comment everything out (put a # sign in front of everything) then it won't run anything scheduled. I think the file is /etc/crontab and var/spool/cron

Just plugged around and read the cron man page.

If you don't want anything related to cron disable cron and anacron services to run on startup.

chkconfig is your best bet, man chkconfig, basically
/sbin/chkconfig --level 2 3 4 5 crond off
the same is for anacron if you want to.
