I have a scripted input that runs on the schedule 0 9 * * * (once a day at 9 am). This is a powershell scripted input and observing that this gets triggered multiple times if the server gets rebooted and hence the forwarder restarts. Any idea why would this happen? Universal Forwarder version - 6.6.6
Ideally this should not happen, if you've specified correct Cron schedule. Does it get executed immediately after the forwarder restart? Also, does it get executed once every time forwarder restarts or multiple times?
interval = [<number>|<cron schedule>]
* How often to run the specified command (in seconds), or a valid cron
* NOTE: when you specify a cron schedule, the input does not run the
script on start-up.
