" warning: commands will be executed using /usr/bin/sh "

Can somebody tell me what it means ?

Thank you

It means precisely what it says, you should expect it to use that shell -- which is perhaps not the shell you're used to.

ANd if you had told us what version of HP-UX you were running we could tell you what Shell is the default for cron.

$ uname -a
HP-UX Orcldb B.11.23 U 9000/800 3154283600 unlimited-user license.

It's the Posix Shell.

On very old HP-UX it would have been the Bourne Shell.

Thank you Methyl and Corona688.

Now, how to use the Posix Shell as the default for cron?

Pls provide the steps.

On your system the default is the Posix Shell.
