- netfence firmware versions 4.2.x


A custom cronjob in "Config" > "Box" > "Advanced Configration" > "System Scheduler" does not work although the used command was executed on command line.

Example: /root/


Check the /var/log/cron logfile whether or not the job was executed.

  cat /var/log/cron



For cronjobs it is importand to enter the correct syntax with full path and execution in the background with "&".


Please correct your cronjob in  "Config" > "Box" > "Advanced Configration" > "System Scheduler" and use the right syntax, like in the following example:  /root/ & > /dev/null &
