I wonder if there is a way to cron a job using @monthly to run from 3rd to 6th of every month, once a day only.

how about setting up four separate identical cron jobs with a different schedule? setting each to run on the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th?

too clunky?

I believe you can put multiple values in a single field in your crontab file, like so:
0    0   3,4,5,6    *    *   ./your-command

Open in new window

which would run the command on the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th of every month at 12:00 am

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

As a side note, you may be able to use a hyphenated range instead - rather than 3,4,5,6 you probably can use 3-6
