Question Can I use crontab command with sys account?


let me confess first, it was question asked in Linux job interview. Question was after typing crontab -u user -e or crontab -e command system gave back some error code to user, he futher told me that crond and and other utilities are installed. How to fix this problem? Not to mentioned I was unable to answer question. So what is the solution to such unseen problem?

"Some error code" is too vague.

Anyway, read the manpages for crontab(1). There is information on allowing / denying users that may help answer the question.
