First Things to Verify

The most common problems arise from:

General

Snapshot Will not Load

See hcron Guide#EventTree.

Compare the location of your events with (run on the machine running hcron-scheduler):

bash -c 'ls -d ~/.hcron/$(hcron-info --fqdn)/events'

ssh Configuration

See hcron Guide#UserConfiguration.

Assuming a hostname of abc.xyz, test (run on the machine running hcron-scheduler):

ssh abc.xyz date
ssh abc date

Vary the test with the username argument if applicable.

If any of these tests require interaction, this may a problem. It is important to have a properly configured ~/.ssh/config to not require interaction in any circumstance.

Comments

Only full line comments are supported.

This is not supported:

...
host=abc.xyz    # this is the best machine to use
...

but this is:

...
# this is the best machine to use
host=abc.xyz
