Edit the crontab file /usr/spool/cron/crontabs/root manually and remove any entries for
BackupEDGE. These would be entries that have /etc/edge.nightly
in them. Then place a comment line at the beginning of the
file so there is an entry in the file other than for BackupEDGE.
A safe way to do this would be as follows:
crontab -l > /tmp/crontab
vi /tmp/crontab (make changes as necessary,save and exit)
The first command outputs a copy of the crontab file to a temp
file. The second command allows you to edit the temporary crontab
file. The third command replaces the original crontab file with
the newly edited crontab file. Your newly created crontab file
might look like this:
* This is a comment line
Then run edge.cronset again. After running the program, you should
observe that the settings are saved and that an entry for the
edge.nightly program is properly placed in root's crontab file.
