I though it should be possible to run a ansible ad hoc to enable or disable a cron job. ansible shows success with "changed": true, but the cron jobs is not enabled.

I see this as a false positive as it ansible command says successful but it really wasn't.

I would like to hear some comments thank you Julian

Important: I needed to add the user for the cron job and put -b at the end of the ad hoc command for become. I'm off to debug more :-)
