Cron running 4 hours late


## Restart DNS Service
15 0 * * * /etc/rc.d/rc.bind restart 1>> /var/named/restart.log


This is an entry in crontab that I believe is supposed to run at 12:15am daily. However, it's not running until 4:15am.

Any ideas on where I should keep looking to try to figure out why it's running late?

Thank You,
-Keith

Use 'crontab'. So:

Code:
crontab -l root
to look at scheduled things for root. Then '-e' to edit. There are also directories in '/etc/cron.*' that match up to the info shown by this command.

Got your system timezone set properly? Four hours sounds like you're in the eastern time zone (5 hours from UTC, 4 hours "summer" time).

Do a long list (ls -l) of /etc/zoneinfo; it probably should be linked to /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Eastern (if, of course, you're in the North American easter time zone).
