10.5: Fix cron for LDAP Users in Mac OS X Server 10.5
Authored by: mkoistinen on Jan 26, '09 08:18:13AM

Just a thought, perhaps you should "-HUP" as an argument to your kill command. This should simply request that cron re-read its configuration. This may also get it to find the ldap users. Not sure, I haven't tested, but if so, it just seems better behaved and should be less disruptive to crontabs that were loaded before LDAP loads.

Question: does cron noticed new LDAP users that were added after cron was started (and HUP'ed)?

Perhaps, if not, in addition to this, you should execute the kill -HUP on a periodic (using cron?) basis, just in case there are new LDAP users added since cron was HUP'ed.
