Multiple runs in one day on same job?

Post by stormlight » Jun 23, 2011 9:00 pm

I think I am overlooking something here. Is it possible to have one job and have it run twice. For example backup server 1 at noon, the at 5pm?

Hello,

Please look through our User Guide (page 67) for all available options while using backup job scheduler. Besides, you can use PowerShell scripts and Windows Task Scheduler to set a desired job schedule.

Thanks.

You can also use "periodically" job scheduler option (set it to every 1 hour), and play with the scheduling control for it (just disallow all times except when you want your job to start). Thanks.

Hello,

Instead of reading through the manual, I just wanna point you straight to the spot. Under the Job Schedule Properties, chose PERIODICALLY EVERY and then chose your times. I use this for our SharePoint/SQL backups and backup every 3 hrs.

Thanks,

Thanks I should have been clearer. When I set periodic I didn't see the ability to define the starting count down.

For example if I want to back up something every 4 hours starting at noon does the countdown after hit finish on the job properties and I have to hit finish after my setting at noon?

or am I better offin this example to create windodwstask or powershell ?

This should be possible with PowerShell and Windows Task Scheduler, here is an existing topic that should help: Feature Request - Start time on Jobs
