    cron on ESXi5 "operation not permitted"

    JohnsonChris Lurker

      Hi all,


      I have my script configured and running ok on my ESXi5 installation. But I'm hitting an issue when I try to add the task as a weekly job to cron. I am editing "/var/spool/cron/crontabs/root" with vi. I add the line needed but when I try to save the changes I get an error stating "operation not permittied". I checked the file permissions, they are currently set to 644, with the "root" file owned by root, and group owner of root. Am I missing something?
