AIX 4.3 Crontab reached a symbol that is not expected... What now?
Posted on 2006-06-19
I am trying to add a line into cron. I want to check my print queue status every minute and if one is down, I want it to push it back up. So I entered this into crontab...
"0-59/1 * * * enq -WAs | grep $(dspmsg -s 2 qstat 33) | cut -d' ' -f1 | xargs enablek"
And AIX returned this error...
"/tmp/crontab_qKbUa" 1 line, 85 characters
A line of the crontab file:
0-59/1 * * * enq -WAs | grep $(dspmsg -s 2 qstat 33) | cut -d' ' -f1 | xargs enablek
contains the following error:
0481-079 Reached a symbol that is not expected.
I do not know enough about cron to figure this one out myself. Thanks for any help in advance!
