The first problem is that it appears the atd dies. It is chkconfig'd to run at
boot, but isn't running when I submit my job.
I submit a job for at which appears to work correctly.
I then manually run the atd.
When the time comes for the job to execute /var/log/messages says:
May 15 22:50:01 ninja atd: Open of jobfile failed: Success
and the atd dies again.
I tried touch /tmp/file | at now
The message is the same, but the job was successful. Do you have the same problem?
I assume you mean you did:
echo touch /tmp/file | at now
(because what you wrote would have worked fine)
If I echo touch /tmp/file | at now
I get the warning "at daemon not running" and the job ends up in the queue.
Also I just realized I have to be root to do an atrm which is wrong. I should be
able to remove my own at jobs. Maybe that points to a permission problem somewhere?
