.The ReaR crontab has been deprecated The `/etc/cron.d/rear` crontab from the `rear` package has been deprecated in RHEL 8 and will not be available in RHEL 9. The crontab checks every night whether the disk layout has changed, and runs `rear mkrescue` command if a change happened. If you require this functionality, after an upgrade to RHEL 9, configure periodic runs of ReaR manually.
