[Solved] :: All cron tasks fail


Not sure what the issue is here but no matter all scripts that I execute via cron are failing. The following is the emailed message:
Quote:
/bin/bash: 1: command not found
10:15:00 Job /etc/cron.mrtg/mrtg.sh >> /dev/null 2&1 terminated (exit status: 127) (mailing output)
All tasks run as root.
/bin/bash is in root's path.
All scripts are executable.
All scripts contain #!/bin/bash as the very first line.

Any help would be appreciated.

your bash syntax is a little wrong. to redirect stderr to wherever stdout has already gone, it's "2>&1". this wouldn't work from a command line either, did you not check it first?
