Re: Windows 2003 Server & Cygwin Cron

I am one step closer, but things are still a little strange.

I set the cron service to log in as Administrator, and it will now service the 
Administrator crontab.  It will not run the tasks in another users crontab.

This might be a usuable solution for me, but not the preferred one.  I am still 
searching for the final answer.

I am getting some success with your suggestions.

Cron is now starting and I do not get the applications errors of switching
user context.  Cron is staying active in my setup too.  But my test crontab
with date is not working.  Is there a log file to see what cron is running
and doing?

I am trying to get the Mailto= output working, but I have not had success
yet.  But I have not used this feature before.

Thanks for the pointer to the docs.  By the way adding Everyone to the
security policies was only a test.  I had no intentions of leaving it.

Check if the new cron_server user account has execute permissions
on the cron.exe executable.
