In cron entry I have disabled the ignite recovery tape backup. But still we are getting alerts as:

The action /opt/osit/omniback/bin/ failed

Crontab entry :

# Ignite recovery tape
#30 22 * * 2 /opt/osit/omniback/bin/ > /dev/null 2>&1

What's the reason for this? Can you help me stop these alerts?

How have you disabled then entry ? What you posted does not look disabled at all. – bodhi.zazen Feb 8 '13 at 3:08
@bodhi.zazen the # in front of the 30 makes it a comment. Laksmi: are you sure this is the only crontab that holds this lime? Did you check users crontab and the admins one? – Rinzwind Feb 8 '13 at 6:27
I did not see the # in the original post. – bodhi.zazen Feb 8 '13 at 14:01
