- Subject: cron error can't switch user context
I have number of machines running Windows2003 and Cygwin 1.7.5. On most cron works. But on one (lemon) it does not. It appears that on lemon cron cannot switch the user context.
Cronevents on lemon shows:
2010/04/15 17:19:01 [SYSTEM] /usr/sbin/cron: PID 656: (tschutter) CMD (/usr/bin/python /cygdrive/f/production-sync/production-sync.py)
2010/04/15 17:19:01 [SYSTEM] /usr/sbin/cron: PID 656: (CRON) error (can't switch user context)
/var/log/cron.log is empty on all machines.
The cron daemon is running as SYSTEM on all machines.
cyglsa is running on all machines.
cygserver is not running on any machine.
I have rerun cron-config, rebooted, etc.
I have searched the net, but most solutions seem to involve Cygwin 1.5 and no cyglsa.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
