# Checks rather system is running Linux or Solaris
function osCheck {
        os_type=$(uname -i)
        echo "Checking OS type."

  • Welcome to U&L. Have you gone through the documentation for cron on Solaris? Is there a more specific issue you want to address? – Haxiel Feb 26 at 13:07
  • You might want to check the syntax of your script at shellcheck.net It's missing several lines at the bottom, for example. – roaima Feb 27 at 18:08

Let suppose your script is located in /path/to/script.sh. You should make it executable:

chmod 700 /path/to/script.sh

Then executing crontab -e you get open editor (probably vi) where you enter

0 2 * * * /path/to/script.sh

This will execute the script once per day at 2h 0 minutes in the night. If you want to execute it every 4 hours you can enter (Linux)

0 */4 * * *  /path/to/script.sh

For Solaris you may need to enter the record on this way:

0 0,4,8,12,16,20 * * *  /path/to/script.sh

You may redirect the STDOUT and/or STDERR to file by your choise
