Typically we use crontab -u in our recipes. However we have a few Solaris 10 boxen where the flavor of crontab won't support the -u flag. Is there a way to deploy an existing crontab file using Solaris' crontab command? How?
This should be equivalent to
crontab -u user filename :
su user -c "'crontab filename'"
I have used this trick before to solve the Solaris problem:
EDITOR="cat $file >" VISUAL="cat $file >" crontab -e "$user"
