I do apologize if I've missed any names, your advises are duly respected.
The answers which hit the mark are from David and Sreenath. The password for
the user account expired. I reset the password and was back in the game.
Thanks a bunch to you Sun Managers.

I've been working on an issue with cron for a particular user and have run
of options: I checked if the files perms are ok for the
/var/spool/cron/crontabs/user, the user is root and group is the users
group. I did a HUP on the cron daemon.

I've a user for whom when I run the cron, I get

"user 28893 c Fri Jan  7 11:43:00 2005 ts=9"

The same script runs for other users.

I'd appreciate if you can help me with some pointers.

I'll summarize.
