unable to run at job

Hi All,

I m not able to run at job with normal user on AIX system

os version is 5300-05-06.

I am able to run at job only with root user.

When I try to run at job with any other user I am getting error:

at: you are not authorized to use at. Sorry.

I checked at.deny file, it is empty and there is no at.allow file. which is very ideal situation.

can somebody help me on this???

from the man pages:
If the at.allow file does not exist and the at.deny file does not exist or is empty, only someone with root user authority can submit a job with the at command.
Kind regards

yes - and exactly that is your problem. Put any entry in there (a user that for sure doesnt want to run an at job - and your problem will be fixed.

Kind regards
