My crontab is not working. Everything was working fine on the box. I changed the dbid yesterday and nothing else.

i tried to execute the following :

# just checking if crontab is working
* * * * * /home/oracle/test/test.sh


contents of "test.sh"
cd /home/oracle/test
touch 1 2 3 4 5

when executing ./test.sh manually. It works perfectly fine.

Can anyone look into this.

Thanks

Check if the cron daemon (crond) is running.

Also, check for errors in /var/log/messages and /var/log/cron/*

Yes, U r absolutey right, the daemon was not running. But that was fixed. Thanks for the concern and help.
