Bill,

How did you edit the cron file to add this job. If you used just some editor (ie vi, pico) to add the line then yes you need to restart the crond. If you used the command "crontab -e" it will bring up the cron file in a vi editor. When you do a write to save this file it automatically updates the crond. I am not sure if there is a way to change what editor crontab -e uses or not. If you need further info or want me to look at the cron stuff let me know.

Bill,

Glad you got it figured out.

For future reference.

To stop and start the crond ( as well as other services) do the following:

Log in as root

go to a command prompt or terminal window

"service crond stop" (to stop crond)

"service crond start" (to start crond)

(omit quotes)

Bill,

I am a little hazy on this but I believe it has to do with the way cron assembles/compiles its stuff. I am not positive on this but I think so. I will try to review this area and see what I come up with.
