We've been implementing an automatic backup system for our EBS on Amazon AWS. When we run the command below as EC2-user, it works.
/opt/aws/bin/ec2-create-snapshot --region us-east-1 -K /home/ec2-user/pk.pem -C /home/ec2-user/cert.pem -d "vol-******** snapshot" vol-********
But when we add /etc/crontab and restart the service (below), it doesn't work.
15 12 * * * ec2-user /opt/aws/bin/ec2-create-snapshot --region us-east-1 -K /home/ec2-user/pk.pem -C /home/ec2-user/cert.pem -d "vol-******** snapshot" vol-********
Can anyone help us?
