setting up cron jobs for different time zone
Posted on 2003-11-25
Hi, I'm trying to set up a cron job between two different time zones. My machine is on GMT, but the machine that the cron will run on is on CST. Is there a way to have the cron daemon use GMT instead of CST to initiate the job?
I know that I can set the TZ environment variable inside my script that can be used once the cron starts. But what I really need is for the cron daemon to recognize the start time based on GMT and not CST.
