Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 859680
run-parts should catch jobs output
Last modified: 2014-09-04 07:35:03 EDT
run-parts should catch output of daily/weekly/monthly jobs to create a well formatted e-mails
Currently subject of a e-mail produces by run-parts looks like this:
Cron <root@t100> [ ! -f /etc/cron.hourly/0anacron ] && run-parts /etc/cron.daily
run-parts should collect output (stdout and stderr) of the jobs it's running and not rely on cron to send e-mails, it should send e-mail explicitly, with well formed subject.
The subject of email could be changed, but I do not want duplicate sending of emails in run-parts script.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
I wouldn't recommend change of behaviour in RHEL-6.
