    Unanswered: cron job scheduling

    I'd like to kick off a DB2 backup using cron. I want it to run at 2:00 a.m. every 4th Sunday. Is there a way to do this?

    Cool


    Not unless you write a script that runs every sunday and "counts" if that is the 4th sunday, or try this:

    00 02 * * 0 [ $(echo "`date +%d`\n7\n/\np\nq"|dc -) -eq 4 ] && /path/to/db2bckp/bckDB2.ksh

    PS: Default shell must be bash or ksh (not sh)
