Cron Startup

AIX 4.x

Have three designated users on this machine.
Lets say I update the crontab
crontab -l > foo
make changes to foo and then update the ctab
crontab foo

When I execute the above step
The following message is displayed.

0481-120 The cron program may need to be started.

Q is how and where does one start this.. and secondly should'nt the same message be displayed to the user when logging in....?

Appreciate any response

From the info I found, the cron is started by an entry in /etc/inittab file Cron for 4.3

Check out the man page on cron ( Cron Daemon ) and
crontab (crontab man page )

And no, it should not show when the user logs in. It may be that the Sys Admin isn't running it for a reason. Check with your SA.
