I have a strange problem. Using Debian 6 and crontab -e (as root),the following cronjob works just fine:
*/5 * * * * bin/sh /root/backup
but it does not work if I set it to run at a specific time:
00 12 * * * bin/sh /root/backup
Unfortunately, there is no error at all in the logfiles.
shows the correct time and timezone.
I have also changed UTC to "no" instead of "yes" in /etc/default/rcS, but that did not help.
I am totally clueless what the reason might be and hope that you may have a solution for me!
