[App_rpt-users] astdn.sh from crontab

I would like to sync the clock of my node every once in a while (like once a

To do this I am using: 

ntpd -q

I found that this kills one of my fobs (stops updating)


So - I thought that I would just stop asterisk, do the time sync and start
Asterisk  again.


I run this script from crontab



/usr/sbin/ntpd -q



But when it gets to line 6 of astdn.sh  (service asterisk stop) it throws an
error and does not really stop Asterisk. So it kills the fob.


I am thinking this error has something to with the environment that crontab
runs things in . how to fix?
