Log error from cron entry into log file

@vbe

correct if I am wrong, I just need to replace my original syntax with
Code:
/datax/vendor/dump.sh 2 > /datax/vendor/err.log

to only log errors?

You are not interested by the output of dump.sh?

in my code
Code:
 2> /var/opt/HDVM/log/HiScan.err

this file should always be of 0 size, since it is for errors only the last execution is important (no need of history...) thats is why you have also the log file...

You also need to ensure that you have 2> rather than 2 > The former will redirect standard error, the latter will give the value 2 as a parameter and then redirect standard output.

Log error from cron entry into log file

Smilie ... would it be
Code:
/datax/vendor/dump.sh >> /datax/vendor/dump.log \ 2> /datax/vendor/err.log

@fretagi.......the point that vbe made was that if you mix the normal output of the script with the error output of the script, then errors are not easily spotted because you have to read the whole damned thing. Therefore, vbe recommends sending the normal output to one file, and error output to another file.

Sorry to intrude.
