Cause type:
Configuration
Root Cause: The reason for this issue is that the User starting the IO server does not have proper access right to import other users' cron jobs.

Resolution

To import cron jobs, Dollar Universe IO server must be run by root or a user with administrator rights (installation by an administrator is not enough).
f the IO server is not run by an administrator, the Crontab can't be imported.

For Dollar Universe 6, the following procedure can be applied to do so, launched as root:


$UNI_DIR_EXEC/unistop
$UNI_DIR_EXEC/uxrights -m assign -a root
$UNI_DIR_EXEC/unistart
