hi all

i want to run a script in my Solaris in a specific time that is on 5 am every second Sunday each month. by mean if the second Sunday in April is 14, then the script run on April 14 at 5 am sharp, the next run will be May 12. since the second Sunday on may is 12.

i ve tried to use this patter
00 05 8-14* 0

i thought that above pattern will look for Sunday from date 8 to 14 in the current month. but in fact it runs every day from 8 to 14, no matter when the day is not Sunday.

anyone got any idea how can i setup my cron with this case.

*sorry if this is might a stupid question and sorry if i have a poor English Hmmm | :|
