>> system shutdown on avery day throught crontab entry

Is it necessary ?

Is there any permission issue ? What's your OS version ?

Re: Shutdwonlog file not update

They seem normal in the first place.
Can you show your full shutdown command syntax you used in crontab ?

# crontab -l

(for both server)

Re: Shutdwonlog file not update

so it does not show in the first place;
one of the scripts there must be providing "shutdown" command inside so it is better to check scripts (probably restart_sfm script) on both server they are match ? ,
and actually in HP-UX as far as I know there is no option (at least for 11iv1 and 11iv2) to enable/disable the shutdown logs to write under /etc/shutdownlog .

So , I recommend you to check your system logs if there is any anomaly in system logs :

syslog /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
mail /var/adm/syslog/mail.log
cron /var/adm/cron/log

Re: Shutdwonlog file not update

I would guess that your system is being cycled by the os_restart.sh shown in the crontabs. Check this script to see what it is actually doing. I'm thinking that it may be doing a "reboot" rather than a "shutdown", but in any case we need to see the actual shutdown command that is being issued.

Re: Shutdwonlog file not update

Hmmmm, I was just doing some reading in the "reboot (1m)" man page and it says /etc/shutdownlog (if it exists) should still get updated so that's not the cause. I guess we need to see the actual command that is being issued.
