Scripting Question

Scheduling of server reboots?

09/04/2015 956 views
Hello everyone.

We currently manually reboot our servers the first and third weekends of every month, usually on Saturdays.  Trying to get away from the manual process as much as possible.  I have a script scheduled that very successfully reboots the few pilot servers.  However, it reboots them every week, not the first or third week like I had hoped.  My current Cron schedule looks like this:

0 18 * * 6#3

Should be 6:00 PM on the 6th day (Saturday) but only the third Saturday of the month.  Am I doing something wrong here?  Does KACE not recognize the # that other Cron softwares recognize?

Thanks for any assistance you could provide.
