http://serverfault.com – I have /etc/cron.d/remote-server-backup as follows: ***starts*** MAILTO="[email protected]" 23 1,7,13,19 * * * root /usr/local/bin/backup-server nzs1.automatem.co 43 2,8,14,20 * * * root /usr/local/bin/backup-server nzs2.automatem.co ***ends*** The script is custom written and performs an incremental backup with rsync. I'm finding that nzs2.automatem.co script runs every 6 hours, the nzs1.automatem.co script runs never. I don't get any emails on [email protected] When I run from command line nzs1.automatem.co, it performs the backup correctly. How can I get the first line to run aut (HowTos)
