getting error while running script under cron


Hi,

I have an issue with cronjob with one user with one script. I have tested to set others cronjob with basic command. It worked. but the actual script is not running under cronjob. I tested the script manually it worked. I have centos 6.2 . User is created on AD and using AD (winbind to login). I am getting logs for UNSAFE

I think we will need to see the script.

One note - if the /tmp/mohit is supposed to be referenced by sop_alerts.sh you need to realize that both cron jobs will run simultaneously.

I created /tmp/mohit just for checking that crond has no issue. It is working but other is not.

IT depends on the script sop_alerts.sh.

Cron runs the job under a different environment - no X for instance, the default PATH is not the same.

You might check the PATH against what you want for the script - then either set it in the script itself (my preference as it lets you know later what the script itself needs), or set it in the crontab (PATH=....).
