SUMMARY: cron job report

Hi all,

I have received two replies for the question:

      I am managing a sun sparc 10 model 40, running sunos 4.1.3.
      Since the first day the machine is installed, root has
      been receiving the following message, twice a day, from the
      cron job. What is it, is it harmful and what should I do
      to get rid of it?

Both pointed out that the path to "find" is incorrect.

My thanks go to:

Indiana University Libraries

Your "cron" job

find / -name .nfs\* -mtime +7 -exec rm -f {} \; -o -fstype nfs -prune

produced the following output:

sh: find: not found
