Hello all.

I have been thrown into the waters of the SLES environment...keeping head above water, but, I am in need of some assistance.

I'd like to get into the world of CRON on SLES, but am really struggling. I have no idea how to even start. I am familiar with
CRON a little bit from the Netware days.

Are there any good references that will step me through from the very beginning, I mean baby steps so I can start to get the hang of how to
use CRON and start automating some processes in SLES.

At this point it appears I have SLES 10. sp2 OES2 and SLES 11 sp2 OES 11, and SLES 11 sp3 to manage.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Good question.... for the SLES technical forum. The chat forum is
specifically for non-technical stuff, so before Susan comes along and
deletes your post (because she's really, really mean like that) I'll
direct you to the other areas. Look for the 'configure-administer' forum
here: https://forums.suse.com/forumdisplay.php?16-SLES-Configure-Administer

Garry,

I'm learning my way around linux also. I learned how to use CRON by
searching the internet for examples/instructiions. But if you want to
ask here in the Novell forums, you should go to either the OES or SLES
forums and post your question. This forum is chat only and not for
questions about OES or SLES.

Thank you both for your replies. I am so sorry. I did not mean to post this in the wrong location. I will navigate to the correct location and post it there.

Thanks

Just an FYI, I don't delete messages where redirection is necessary,
without actually redirecting first. And neither should anyone else. :)
