Error when I try to modify /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root file...

Hello everybody,

I've some troubles configuring ghettoVCB for automatic backup in cron system of my VMware ESXi 6.5 machine...

Actually, I've configured ghettoVCB as good as well and I'm able to backup my virtual machines by starting ghettoVCB via cli but I'm not able to modify the file /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root in order to add instructions to start the shell command: I've change chmod +w to allow modifications but when I try to save the system answers "Operation not permitted"...

Someone else encountered this problem?

Let me know, maybe I'm doing something wrong but I'm not able to understand what...

Best

Max
