Problem using cron on SCO 5.0.5 - SCO

Hi, I have a problem using cron on Compaq Proliant ML-370 O/S SCO 5.0.5.. Jobs have been scheduled for more than 20hrs. Problem is after executing the jobs for 6 to 7 hrs the cron stops functioning. I need to reboot Sco Unix in order for the cron to be started. This is a serious problem for me as i need to take databases tran's log dumps every hour, and definately its wrong way to reboot the server for cron to be started. Waiting for an answer and thanx. Regards Nitin...

    What patches have been installed - specifically has the 'Cron Suppliment'
    oss642a been applied.

    If cron isn't running, why don't you just type /etc/cron?
