I have /etc/cron.d/remote-server-backup as follows:
***starts*** MAILTO="firstname.lastname@example.org" 23 1,7,13,19 * * * root /usr/local/bin/backup-server nzs1.automatem.co 43 2,8,14,20 * * * root /usr/local/bin/backup-server nzs2.automatem.co ***ends***
The script is custom written and performs an incremental backup with rsync.
I'm finding that nzs2.automatem.co script runs every 6 hours, the nzs1.automatem.co script runs never. I don't get any emails on email@example.com. When I run from command line nzs1.automatem.co, it performs the backup correctly.
My Environment is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
How can I get the first line to run automatically?
