Before I start, I would like to inform that, I went through all FAQs and
other threads before posting here.
I came across this thread where I faced the similar error, but couldn't get
what they did to resolve it.
I 'm trying to schedule a shell script on cygwin using cron. No matter what
I do I don't seem to get the cron job executing my bash script.
My script is temp.sh
echo `date` > /home/test/temp.log
crontab -e is having the following details
* * * * * sh /home/test/temp.sh > /home/test/temp.sh.err 2>&1
I did use the paths in the script itself and I also used the windows path
where the cygwin installed(/cygdrive/d/cygwin/).
I also tried using the following by editing the crontab:
* * * * * date > /home/test/date.txt
Still not working. I don't have administrator login. I ran the
cron_diagnose.sh and it din't give me any errors.
What am I doing wrong? Please help I 'm a newbie to Cygwin.
