    Question The 'at' command


    Hi,

    Hope somebody can help with this...

    If schedule a job with the 'at' command to start at 12 midday but the machine goes down from 11a.m. til 1p.m. will the job be run when the machine comes back up - i.e. is the schedule maintained and any jobs run if their start time was missed by a machine outage?


    Using SunOS 5.8

    Any help much appreciated.

    Paul

    There's something called anacron which deals with this eventuality for cron...don't know about at though. Any reason why you're not using cron?
