I cant create crontab in RUT955


I can’t create crontab in RUT 955 (FW VERSION RUT9_R_00.07.02.3). Im trying crontab creating using crontab comand and mv the file to correct folder as root:

    root@Teltonika-RUT955:~# crontab -e
    crontab: can't move 'root.new' to 'root': No error information


    root@Teltonika-RUT955:~# mv /etc/crontabs/root.new /etc/crontabs/root
    mv: can't stat '/etc/crontabs/root': No error information

it seems to me that the system don’t permit to write in /etc/crontabs/root

Thanks for any advice.


Is my understanding correct that when you simply execute ‘crontab -e’, you get this error? Did you make any changes?

Could you please upgrade your device to the latest v7.05.4 firmware with the ‘keep settings’ option is disabled? After the update, check if the 'crontab -e ’ command functions correctly. It’s important to disable the ‘keep settings’ option during the update, as there’s a possibility that the issue may persist otherwise.

RUT955 firmware can be downloaded from here.

Kind Regards,
