@RakeshS - Still haven't to get exactly what I want. I run some things using chef local but it isn't seamless the way I have described in my question.

I also use anacron. Beginning to suspect that anacron is the culprit here.

I echo to STDOUT in the script. This automatically appends to the file /var/mail/<user-for-cron-job> with the timestamp.

Are you running behind a firewall and use a proxy server to connect? It is possible that the upgrade manager cannot connect via the proxy. There should be a setting for it somewhere.

I had added an answer but misread the question. I do not think what you are saying is possible.

I'd also recommend pendrivelinux.com. Had the same issue earlier.

comment How can I audit commands executed by each user in the Terminal?
You could tee the log to syslog and then have a remote daemon forward all the syslog to another machine that you can use. I guess you will have su to the user atleast once and setup the bash_profile/bashrc to forward the history to syslog.

Your question also maybe a duplicate of the above question. There is a known issue when trying to connect and Android phone to a ad-hoc network.
