I created an entry in crontab to execute a job at midnight as e.g user A.
In the morning, I find there were no result of the script, checking the /var/cron/log, I find that during that hour (same time) only a script user root was executed.
Questions: a) Can we set multiple jobs in cron to execute the same time. b) If no? Does this mean user root cron has precedence over any other user to execute the cron job?
here is what they look like. root$ crontab -l 05 00 10 * * /opt/sdf/sbin/somescriptA.sh> /dev/null 2>&1 #Test
userA$crontab -l 05 00 10 * * /opt/sdf/sbin/somescriptB.sh> /dev/null 2>&1 #Test
