    I keep getting emails from my server from "cron Daemon" with the subject:

    Cron <root@server> /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/dnsqueue > /dev/null 2>&1@reboot /usr/local/cpanel/bin/onboot_handler

    The only content of the email is:

    /bin/bash: 1@reboot: ambiguous redirect

    I can't figure out what's doing this. I tried this command:

    file /var/spool/cron/root

    which returned ASCII text

    These are my server settings:
    I have centos 6.9 (final)
    cpanel 11.64.0.33

    Hello,

    It looks like your root crontab file isn't formatted correctly. You can edit this cron job with the following command:

    Code:
    crontab -e
    Here's an example of how it should look:

    Code:
    0 6 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/exim_tidydb > /dev/null 2>&1
    30 5 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/optimize_eximstats > /dev/null 2>&1
    19 4 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp --cron
    0 1 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/cpbackup
    0 2 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup
    35 * * * * /usr/bin/test -x /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tail-check && /usr/local/cpanel/bin/tail-check
    45 */4 * * * /usr/bin/test -x /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/update_mailman_cache && /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/update_mailman_cache
    30 */4 * * * /usr/bin/test -x /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/update_db_cache && /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/update_db_cache
    30 */2 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/mysqluserstore >/dev/null 2>&1
    15 */2 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dbindex >/dev/null 2>&1
    15 */6 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/autorepair recoverymgmt >/dev/null 2>&1
    */5 * * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/dcpumon-wrapper >/dev/null 2>&1
    2 0 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/cpaddons_report.pl --notify
    1,16,31,46 * * * * /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/dnsqueue > /dev/null 2>&1
    09,39 * * * * /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/clean_user_php_sessions > /dev/null 2>&1
    12 5 * * * /usr/local/cpanel/bin/sqloptimizer >/dev/null 2>&1
    
    Thank you.
