/etc/sysconfig/cron missing in /etc/init.d/cron


/etc/sysconfig/cron is found read only from /etc/init.d/boot.localnet .
And it is not read from /etc/init.d/cron

(But /etc/sysconfig/ssh is read from /etc/init.d/sshd )
Can we include /etc/sysconfig/cron to /etc/init.d/cron in the SUSE load?
What should be the exact entry?

OS: SLES 9

You don't.
/etc/sysconfig/cron (in SuSE) is designed to be read by /etc/init.d/boot.cleanup and /etc/init.d/boot.localnet (as you pointed) - not by /etc/init.d/cron.

The purpose is to configure things related to deleting old files in /tmp (and /var/tmp if you wish) and core files. Nothing to do with the cron process itself.
