I have been able to get Cygwin Cron up and operational on Windows XP Home
and Windows XP Pro. I am having problems getting working on Windows 2003
I have installed it as described in many places and the Cron appears to be
running. I tried the simple /usr/bin/date job, and I get the error in the
Event Log: "(CRON) error (can't switch user context)." I have tried putting
the everyone group on the Local Security policies for "Create a token
object", "Logon as service", and "Replace a process level token". The
problem still happens.
I looked through the archives and it appears that no solution has worked
yet. Or at least it has not been published yet. I asked the last person to
work on this problem, and they gave up.
Can we revisit this again? Does anybody have ideas?
By the way, I see reference to a cron README file that should have been in
the install. I cannot find it anywhere yet. Did it get lost in the new
releases or is it hiding somewhere other than /usr/doc?
