Long(er) username crontab setup failure
$ head -1 /etc/release
OpenIndiana Development oi_151.1.6 X86 (powered by illumos)
i have create user:
As you may see, useradd command created user (although it was complaining):
$ pfexec useradd -u 1961 predrag_zecevic
UX: useradd: predrag_zecevic name too long.
When i try to create crontab file:
$ crontab -e
- I have entered here something, not relevant for problem...
$ less /var/cron/log
! No such user as predrag_zecevicpredrag_z<F0><FE><80><B2><ED><FE>X<A3>YP,^A - cron entries not created Wed Sep 19 12:53:55 2012
al /var/spool/cron/crontabs/ | grep predrag_zecevic 1 root admin 1.6K 2012-09-19 12:53 predrag_zecevic
r------- 1 root admin 51 2012-09-19 12:53 predrag_zecevic.au
$ cat /etc/cron.d/cron.deny
At the end, crontab content is there BUT is not executed !!!
Is it possible to have crontab executed for user with username longer than 8 characters?
