Hi -

Right now I have a problem with my crontab.

Here is the crontab file.

silver-fox# crontab -l
# /etc/crontab - root's crontab for FreeBSD
#
# $FreeBSD: src/etc/crontab,v 1.21.2.3 2000/12/08 10:56:07 obrien Exp $
#
SHELL=/bin/sh
PATH=/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin
HOME=/var/log
#
#minute hour    mday    month   wday    who     command
#
*/5     *       *       *       *       root    /usr/libexec/atrun
#
# rotate log files every hour, if necessary
0       *       *       *       *       root    newsyslog
#

30      5       1       *       *       root    periodic monthly

I keep getting these emails

root: not found

And the log file /var/log/crontab

Jun 17 00:20:00 silver-fox /usr/sbin/cron[246]: (root) CMD
(/usr/libexec/atrun)
Jun 17 00:20:00 silver-fox /usr/sbin/cron[247]: (root) CMD
(root^I/usr/libexec/atrun)
Jun 17 00:20:23 silver-fox crontab[253]: (root) LIST (root)

So I see that ^I and root and what I am assuming is the CMD, which it really
should not be. If I am right the cron is trying to run /usr/libexec/atrun as
user root and not part of the command. I just don't get it. I have tried to
edit the crontab with crontab -e and even copied a new file over from
/usr/src/etc/crontab and then did crontab crontab to get updated. I'm lost.

Thanks in advance.
Mike
