Well could you tell us what you did so far, and how you configured it to run?

using a RHEL system, the following is the syntax I use:
Quote:
at 06:50 -f ~/file.to.run.sh
make sure your script has the relevant path and env. variable to run it.
Look at
Quote:
man at
for further information.

how do you know you don't have permissions?
Do you have an /etc/at.deny and/or /etc/at.allow defined? If so, why not use your sudo rights to modify that?
Do you have sudo rights?

zQUEz,

There is no such type of the file i'd found. I read from man command if i haven't such type of the file at.allow or at.deny then i can run this command or haven't the permission for the same.
But thanks for your co-operation.

If you don't have permission to use at, you should get the following when you try and queue a command:
Quote:
You do not have permission to use at.
Is your "atd" service running? if it wasn't, you should get the following when you try and queue a command:
Quote:
Can't open /var/run/atd.pid to signal atd. No atd running?
What does the command `atq` return?
What is the actual `at` command you are typing at the command line?
