Description

Cron on RHEL nodes displays the following error:

- Rudder system policy: basic setup (common)
  - Common
    - CRON Daemon
      - None - The CRON daemon was not running and could not be restarted - Error

This is because it's looking for the wrong init script. The following error occurs on the RHEL node:

Proposed executable file "/etc/init.d/cron" doesn't exist
/etc/init.d/cron restart promises to be executable but isn't
I: Comment: Restarting crond

The reason is because RHEL has a different init script:

# ls -al /etc/init.d/cron*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1926 Oct 20  2011 /etc/init.d/crond
