Cron Jobs for asterisk

Last Modified: 2013-12-21
Hi guys,
I would like to put some of my extensions on DND at a certain time , currently I am doing it at the phone station or thru Trixbox command prompt by typing the following:
asterisk -rx 'database put DND 512 YES'

I have tried to create a cron Job thru Webmin but I was unsuccessful . I setup my time and my command to execute , if I look at the log I can see that the job run but nothing happened.
I am attaching a screen shot of my job may be you can tell me what is wrong.
The job should run at 9:52 am everyday.

The second part of my question is I would like to create another job to change the"Day/Night mode Control of *281" to night mode at a certain time.

Thank you
