Custom schedule?

Post by MoellerAerospace » Aug 15, 2014 2:37 pm

Can someone give me some information on how to configure a customized schedule? Ideally, I would like to set a job to run at :05 past the hour and :35 past the hour; I am currently unable to do this with the integrated VEEAM schedule setup.

We have 6 servers that are currently running hourly replication.
SRV01 is set for 5 minutes after the hour
SRV02 is set for 10 minutes after the hour
...

We are having a problem where deletion of the snapshot is freezing the production VMs to a point that it is effecting the environment. Yes, we have "safe snapshot removal" selected.
We did at one point have replication occurring every 30 minutes, but replication was causing issues with Storage Craft Shadow Protect backup jobs, so we had to set our replication schedule outside of our backup schedules. With replication every 30 minutes, deletion of the snapshot didn't cause issue, probably because the snapshots were small enough that the commit back wasn't as bad.

Aaron, the periodic job runs based on when you created it, so if you create the job, for example, at :05 and set it to run every 30 minutes, it will run as required. Otherwise, you can use Windows Scheduler and PowerShell to script your jobs to start at the required times.

I had tried that. The jobs creep more and more out of schedule. If I create a job to run every 30 minutes, and it's initial start is at :05, it eventually creeps its way around the clock.

As far as Windows Schedule and PowerShell, is there a site I can go to for the commands to use for PowerShell to kick these off?

There are a number of existing threads regarding that, here's one of them: Getting started with Task Scheduler.

Just schedule the following script via Windows Task Scheduler to run on whatever basis you want to:

Code: Select all

Get-VBRJob -name "Name of your Job" | Start-VBRJob
Thanks.

And this has been addressed in v8 as well, start times are now fixed.
