Re: crontab error

I'm finding if I run the cron command manually from a shell window, it
works. If I try to start it as a service, it fails to start. Below is what I
found in the win2k application log. Does it help?

"The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( cron ) cannot be found. The
local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message
DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following
information is part of the event: cron : PID 2976 : starting service `cron'
failed: execv: 1, Operation not permitted."

Is this some sort of a permissions problem? Do I need to start the cron
service as a specific user?

Please re-run the script
to see if it can find any problems.
