I have a couple of simple cron jobs running under root. However, they seem to be running twice, and I can't figure out why. No other users have any cron jobs running and the the only cronfile is for root. The jobs complete just fine, but twice.
Here is the root crontab file:
# /etc/crontab: system-wide crontab # Unlike any other crontab you don't have to run the `crontab' # command to install the new version when you edit this file # and files in /etc/cron.d. These files also have username fields, # that none of the other crontabs do. SHELL=/bin/sh PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin # m h dom mon dow user command 17 * * * * cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly 25 6 * * * test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily ) 47 6 * * 7 test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.weekly ) 52 6 1 * * test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.monthly ) 0,30 * * * * sh /scripts/amsbackup.sh 0,15,30,45 * * * * sh /scripts/dbbackup.sh #
I did check to see if cron was running twice by exicuting,
ps aux |grep cron here is the output indicating there are in deed two processes:
root 9822 0.0 0.0 2620 892 ? Ss Dec24 0:01 cron root 19146 0.0 0.0 3904 788 pts/1 S+ 21:27 0:00 grep --color=auto cron
So what is going on, and how can I prevent it?
Thank you for any help.
