    Hi,

    My crond will not start after reboots and I must manually start the service after each reboot.
    Does anybody have experience with this problem?

    Thank you

    It does depend what OS you are running. On Linux, you can do the following to find out which boot (init) levels crond will run up in:

    chkconfig --list crond

    It should look like this:

    crond 0:eek:ff 1:eek:ff 2:eek:n 3:eek:n 4:eek:n 5:eek:n 6:eek:ff

    If it does, then you need to look through your boot logs (/var/log/dmesg and/or /var/log/messages) to find out what's happening to crond. If it doesn't look like that, then you can use:

    chkconfig crond on

    And that should set it correctly for run levels 2 to 5.

    Many thanks Jonathan!

    I think it will work now:

    root@skadi [/tmp]# chkconfig --list crond
    service crond supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add crond')
    root@skadi [/tmp]# chkconfig crond on
    root@skadi [/tmp]# chkconfig --list crond
    crond 0:eek:ff 1:eek:ff 2:eek:n 3:eek:n 4:eek:n 5:eek:n 6:eek:ff
    root@skadi [/tmp]#

    I've just made a comparision and that looks good to me. I don't see anything major missing.
