Q on Daylight savings V's Cron'ed jobs...
I have a critical job scheduled for 1:30:00 AM Sunday morning
What will happened?
Will the job be skipped when RTC clock-Time jumps an hour from 0:59:59 to
Can recent Distro releases of Linux handle this? i.e. does it pre-empt this
condition and parse the Crontab for jobs in that inclusion time-zone and
modify the timings of same by pushing them ahead an hour? maybe? and if so,
what happens jobs which were scheduled in the hour which the 1-2AM jobs are
pushed to? Carnage?
