Subject: cron problems

I'm a little confused. Ps -eaf shows the cron process running. However Windows Services say that 
it is not. My crontab is coming back with incorrect permissions. Can you let me know what I need 
to do to get cron working ?

You have a cron service defined but stopped under the account cron_server
but you also have a cron process running ./cron under account administrator (10500).
It was not launched as a service and it has locked /var/run/, preventing other
crons from running.

In addition you seem to have users called both Administrator and also administrator, which is 

The group of administrator is mkgroup-l-d, which suggests that your /etc/group file is not up to 
The uid of administrator  is 10500, it is probably a domain administrator who may not be
in /etc/passwd.
