cron bug?


Ok... this is strange.

Im running RHAS3 on this box... I just added a cron job to roots crontab with crontab -e and I am getting

/bin/sh: line 1: anaconda-ks.cfg: command not found

I run this script as is off the command line manually all the time with no problems at all. Its a very simple rsync script.

#!/bin/bash
rsync --verbose --progress --stats --compress --rsh=ssh --recursive --times --perms --links --delete /vhosts/whoever/ xx.xx.xx.xxx:/vhosts/whoever/

I tried putting the full command in the crontab as well instead of using the script and that doesn't work either. same error.

googling took me to red hat and they were zero help. Plenty of posts but no answers.

anyone out there have this problem? and better yet a solution. I'm hoping it's something simple but it stinks like a bug.

Thanks all.

tried it this way....

5 * * * * * /root/scripts/rsync.sh

and this way

5 * * * * * rsync --verbose --progress --stats --compress --rsh=ssh --recursive --times --perms --links --delete /vhosts/whoever/ xx.xx.xx.xxx:/vhosts/whoever/ 2>&1 > /var/log/rsync.log

and this way

5 * * * * * /usr/bin/rsync --verbose --progress --stats --compress --rsh=ssh --recursive --times --perms --links --delete /vhosts/whoever/ xx.xx.xx.xxx:/vhosts/whoever/

and this way

5 * * * * * /usr/bin/rsync --verbose --progress --stats --compress --rsh=/usr/bin/ssh --recursive --times --perms --links --delete /vhosts/whoever/ xx.xx.xx.xxx:/vhosts/whoever/

got the same results every time....an email containing this -->

/bin/sh: line 1: anaconda-ks.cfg: command not found

Tried everything I could think of, also tried a bunch of different time entries and did it with loggging and w/out. Absolute paths and w/out. And the script is executable(just trying to put any useful info here that I can think of) .

If you need more info just tell me.
Thanks again all.

Not sure if the above is just a typo ...

#mm hh dd mm w command
Perhaps you have an extra asterisk - should actually be 5 followed by 4 asterisks
5 * * * * /root/scripts/rsync.sh

sure enough you are correct. It wasn't a type-o, as it seems i just can't count LOL.....well, glad it was something simple, kinda figured it must have just been some stupid error on my part as it usually is.
I really appreciate the prompt response ppuru Im in your debt.
