apcheckall and sendmail

On an NCR 3500 apcheckall runs from root cron to test a RAID. I wish to stop apcheckall from reporting via sendmail. No man page on apcheckall can be found

Open cron file, find line with redirection to sendmail and remove that redirection. Resave the file and restart cron.d with:

 crontab  -r
 crontab <cron_file>

hope this helps

Thanks for your reply, however the cron entry for apcheckall contains no reference to sendmail, the entry is as follows :-
/bin/su root -c "/sbin/apcheckall -y 2> /dev/null"

Possibly the "-y" argument may have an effect on reporting but, as I said before, there is no man entry for apcheckall.

I don't have man entry for that command as well (SGI box). Why don't you try how it works without -y option? Just run that line as root and see what happens.
