First of all, thanks for your blog. I find it very very useful. <br /> Regarding this article, there is one thing I´d like to remark. I suppose that all this is related to manage root cron, isn´t it? <br /> Every user has access to create and edit his own cron although it does not appear in the cron.allow or cron.deny <div>&nbsp;</div> Regards, <br /> Alberto <br />

Alberto, this posting is about restricting users from cron. By default AIX has no cron.allow file and an empty cron.deny file which allows all users access to cron. But if these files are customized then users can be restricted from having cron access.

You´re right, I did't notice about the empty cron.deny file by default. <br /> Thanks again

Brian, thank you very much for this very useful information. Can you please help me determine what a user can do in the event that the default settings are in place? If there is no cron.allow file and an empty cron.deny file, what can a user actually do? <div>&nbsp;</div> Thank you!
