I’m having problems with a system that uses cron to run a script every
12 hours. The problem is that everything will work for quite a few days
and then without any indication of a problem it stops. I see no evidence
that the script is actually being executed when it does stop, unless
EVERY command in the script failed. The script copies and bunch of files
and removes a file others, etc. At this point, I don’t feel its the
script file. My crontab entry is as follows:
1 0,12 * * * ./copy_logs //5 TEST >> /tmp/cron_output
I also have cron running in debug mode, i.e. cron -L -v. I find it hard
to believe that cron just stopped working, but I really don’t have any
ideas as to what the problem is.
Any ideas or things to try would be greatly appreciated.
