Quick cron scheduling help needed



  • I’ve set up many cron style upload image tasks in one of my FOG installs and they never fire off. Either i’m not using correct syntax, or something is else is goofy, this install is 1.2.0. The fog schedule service is running (pretty sure) the clients (legacy) are set to auto log out on a task (force reboot)

  • It was adding the * that helped get these going, thanks Deastrom!



  • If the intent is to run those tasks on any (dom) or (month) then you should be sure to put a wildcard, the * character, in those fields that you are not setting.


  • Developer

    i think scheduled tasks may have been somewhat broken in 1.2.0
    i recommend upgrading to a development version to get this working.
