Im running Chrootless Debian 10 and trying to set a cron task on the clients to shut down at a set time, I added the line in the config file but it does not run on the built end client. do I need to do anything with the roo user account since it is disabled on the clients?

kernower3: which ltsp version?
12:20
New 20.04 or old 5?
12:20
<kernower3>
20.04 from PPA
12:21
<alkisg>
You're supposed to put CRONTAB_x in ltsp.conf, and run `ltsp initrd` to update ltsp.img
12:21
Did you do these steps?
12:24
On the client, `cat /etc/cron.d/ltsp` will show you the generated entry
12:26
<kernower3>
I put CRONTAB_x="30 12 * * * poweroff"

cron.d requires you to mention the user that needs to run the command

Thanks, how is that represented in the conf file ?
14:42
<alkisg>
(03:24:10 PM) alkisg: On the client, `cat /etc/cron.d/ltsp` will show you the generated entry
14:42
kernower3: is the line there?
14:46
<kernower3>
sorry I meant in the conf file how do I specify which user the conf runs under ?
14:47
<alkisg>
kernower3: but you didn't yet do the first step
14:47
Why do you refuse to check?
14:47
An example would be: CRONTAB_x="30 12 * * * root poweroff"
14:47
But if you don't see it in /etc/cron.d/ltsp.conf on the client, it's the first problem

Having issues getting client to boot as working remotely and haivng to do so on a VM in VMware via VPN due to be locked down in my house for over a month. and that code is exactly the the same as I tried before which did not work. I was actually replying to qunox's comment as they suggested I needed to reference the user somehow.

You could use a VM client

And epoptes to get a root shell in the client, and execute that cat command
