I have a new Centos 7 system and having a trouble with cron jobs not runnning at the specified time:
[root@media cron.d]# cat /etc/cron.d/rsnapshot 30 02 * * * root /bin/rsnapshot daily 00 02 * * 0 root /bin/rsnapshot weekly
But in the logs:
[root@media cron.d]# cat /var/log/cron | grep rsnapshot Mar 29 03:00:01 media CROND: (root) CMD ( /bin/rsnapshot weekly) Mar 29 03:00:11 media CROND: (root) CMD ( /bin/rsnapshot daily)
I don't think it can be a time zone issue as it is the relative timing between the entries that is a problem - they should be executed with 30 minutes between them not with 10 seconds.
I can only assume it is something to do with systemd/anacron or some other new stuff. I am running centos 7 with the default settings (I haven't installed or removed anything to do with cron).
EDIT: Just realised it could have been due to the time change - but I thought that should switch 1AM to 2AM so not sure why the jobs would run together
