- Subject: cygrunsrv: cron context switch problem
Platform is W2K, user is a member of Administrators group.
Cron is installed as a service and started as follows:
cygrunsrv -I cron -p /usr/sbin/cron -a -D
cygrunsrv -S cron
Services applet in MMC shows cron service is installed under LocalSystem
account and started.
/etc/group has SYSTEM entry with gid 18.
$CYGWIN is 'ntsec'
crontab has a "ls -l" command that gets scheduled every 5 minutes.
But, I see the following in event log every 5 minutes:
"...(CRON) error (can't switch user context)."
Can anybody comment on this?
