RE: Solaris cron audit problem

While not the greatest solution to be constantly restarting cron, 
it is a solution I guess I'll have to live with until a better solution

comes along...


Is there some way I can tell cfengine to not restart cron from
if there is not a modification to the crontab?  Or, do I just push out

a cfagent.conf without a line to restart cron?

Is there a reserved command to restart cron, or would I need to 
do something like:

make the edits to cron (under editfiles:)
remove the resulting edit file from
remove the file from /var/spool/cron/crontabs
restart cron ("cron" restart "/usr/sbin/cron")

This seems like an incredibly ugly way to accomplish a fairly simple
Am I missing some steps, or is this one of those times when it just has
be that way because I'm not using PAM authentication and need to undo 
the audit/security stuff employed by Solaris?

I believe the other way around it is to remove the .au files from the
crontab directory and restart cron whenever cfengine makes an edit to
crontab file.
