I have a server installed with RHEL4. crontab entries are running in root login. I have two more logins named front1 and frontadmin. Now whenever I want to edit using crontab -e it says 'permission denied'. crontab -l shows no entries available under these two logins. Kindly help me to solve this issue as I am adding more and more entries in root logins which can be added in the frontadmin login due to this problem. Thanks.

In BSD there's a /var/cron/allow and a /var/cron/deny... however in RHEL I think it uses /etc/cron.allow and /etc/cron.deny. If those files exist then the user needs to be in the correct one. In AIX it's /var/adm/cron/cron.allow and /var/adm/cron/cron.deny.

I know that in SLES it's /etc/cron.allow and deny like I stated above. You might look there.
