Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I get the above error when running tar -cjf from cron. However, if running the same command from the shell, as the same user, there are no errors.

The system is FreeBSD 9.2, so this is BSD tar.

Any help would be appreciated.
