Cron job's failing


#1

Cron navcron@localhost $BINDIR/getBoksMacs.sh $NUM_THREADS

java.lang.NullPointerException
at QueryBoks.processMacEntry(QueryBoks.java:917)
at QueryBoks.run(QueryBoks.java:264)

There is nothing in the docs about the cron jobs, and was wondering if someone has any idea what the above failure is about.


#2

I get this error every hour and have no idea as what it is attempting to do. I have not found any documentation as to what these cron jobs are or even why they where created. I simply install Nav per the docs and added a few devices. I didn’t tell nav what to do, but it just started to perform some actions without my knowledge. Which begs the question, where is this documented? Are we to guess as to what is going to be done?


#3

Problem resolved. I’ve reinstalled CentOS and nagios, but left out NAV since there just isn’t any support whatsoever.
