Change the first line to

Code:
#!/bin/sh -x

and capture both stdout *and* stderr, something like...

Code:
1,6,11,16,21,26,31,36,41,46,51,56 * * * * fully-qualified-script-path >/var/log/mystdout 2>/var/log/mystderr

Just to muddy the waters some more Smilie You should really consider pinging more than one thing before deciding to shutdown. Otherwise a router restart could shut down your server. Does your UPS have a network or serial port on it? It might be capable of sending a warning to the server directly in the event of a failure.

Yeah it has a serial port but i cant get it to work with solaris, thats why i had this idea.

The original idea was to have more then one address to ping but i decided that becuase the machine is strictly a file server only it wouldnt really matter if the router cut it out every couple of weeeks.

Right, so i have got it to work, only by actually inputting every time i want it to run into the crontab, but now the next problem is that it wont do a clean shutdown Smilie
