Re: crontab related

this is interesting situation and as far as I know unix have some remedies to protect overlapping cronjobs. Check this :

http://docs.hp.com/en/B2355-90682/queuedefs.4.html

and recommend this one:

HI,
Remember always the admin/root user is having more privileged then normal user.

I'm not sure why you mention crontab and init in the same question?

If you want to order the two, you should fiddle with the times.

Re: crontab related

lets see,

you've got 2 unnamed users,
possibly admin or normal user so you might have a mix???

running an init command out of cron? at the same time?

I think you broke my crystal ball...
