Unable to run jobs using the at command



  • I am trying to get anything to execute using the "at" command. I am able to schedule jobs

    at now < runner.sh
    

    where the contents of runner is a simple "touch ijustran"
    When I run my at command, I get output that "Job X will be executed using /bin/sh" and I can see it queued for execution when I execute "at -l" but it just doesn't seem to do anything.

    Are there any config settings I need to change prior to using at?

    We don't include all of the necessary components for at to fully function out of the box.

    The binaries are there, but notably the cron job is not present. I can't remember what else might be missing, though.

    You could install the Cron package and then add an entry for this:

    */5	*	*	*	*	root	/usr/libexec/atrun
