Scheduled cron tasks don't start

  • Everything was working fine with 0.32 but I have a lot of problems with 1.0.1 …
    I made 3 cron tasks eg
    45 22 * * 1-6

    Under ls group it says No, is it correct?
    None of the tasks start, and there is no task under active tasks.
    I can execute a forced task but scheduled cron tasks don’t work.

    Thank you for help!

  • Thank you Tom! with
    [CODE]sudo service FOGScheduler restart[/CODE]

    it works fine now!
    I had done it before but for some reason it did not work. Also I wonder why it did not work after many linux (different distros)/fog reinstallations.
    Anyway, not it is OK!
    Thank you again! :)

    Try running:

    [code]sudo service FOGScheduler restart[/code]

    My guess is the service just wasn’t/isn’t running.

  • Please could someone help me?
    I can’t find the solution by myself… :(
    Do you need any more info from me?
    Thank you

  • I installed fog on debian 7.5 and the schedule problem remains… Scheduled tasks don’t start. What is happening? Am I doing something wrong?

    I reinstalled from scratch Linux+fog. So Database problem is gone.
    But scheduled tasks still don’t run.
    I just made a cron task 05 21 * * * and it did not start when the time came.
    [CODE]$ service --status-all
    [ ? ] FOGImageReplicator
    [ ? ] FOGMulticastManager
    [ ? ] FOGScheduler

    I don’t know why it’s happening, but it’s not something FOG has done.

    Change the permissions of the /var/lib/mysql directory and see if that helps:

    [code]sudo stop mysql
    sudo chmod -R 775 /var/lib/mysql
    sudo start mysql
    sudo service FOGMulticastManager restart
    sudo service FOGImageReplicator restart
    sudo service FOGScheduler restart[/code]

    Why did this happen now? The pc is just on and is supposed to take backups. There was no problem with database the previous days.

  • Senior Developer

    What’s the OS you’re running this on?

  • New problem: Unable to connect to database.
    After reboot it is OK for some minutes, but then the same. :(

  • Senior Developer

    Is the FOGScheduler service running?
