    Cron not running in oralce user?


    I have set a RMAN backup cron job run by oracle user,and script and cron job seems like not problem. i can run it manually, but when i set it as automatic, then the cron job not runing.

    but when i set the cron job in Root user, the job is automatic as i set .
    do u all know which part i got settting wrong?

    in the /etc/cron.deny is empty and i dont have /etc/cron.allow file.

    ORACLE user cron job -> ( wont run automacatic)
    48 10 * * * /appl/script/RMAN_Backup.sh >> /dump/ADWES01B/backup/recover_list.out 2>&1

    Root user cron job -> (no problem)
    24 11 * * * su - oracle -c /appl/script/RMAN_Backup.sh >> /dump/ADWES01B/backup/recover_list.out 2>&1
