Cron Job Skipped - No Clue Why


There is this job which runs Mon-Fri at 9:15 AM and it did not run on the 31st july:

Code:
# grep run_distribution.sh /var/log/cron
Jul 27 09:15:02 lon2 crond[31429]: (batch) CMD (/usr/share/distribution-platform-mdp-dict3.3/run_distribution.sh municipal full)
....

Jul 30 09:15:01 lon2 crond[5057]: (batch) CMD (/usr/share/distribution-platform-mdp-dict3.3/run_distribution.sh municipal delta)

....
Code:
# date
Fri Aug  1 04:25:40 BST 2014
#
Where do I check the logs for the cron job that can tell me why it was not fired?

/var/log/messages shows that there were some issues related to LDAP and ssd during that time. Nothing much in there.

Moderators,

Please delete this thread as I can't recall now on what server in our production the issue was.

Its short host name is "lon2"?
