Scheduling Question

Post by joshgfeller » Mar 20, 2017 1:15 pm

Hello, sorry if this has been asked before but I am creating a tiered approach to my VM backup jobs. Tier 1 will have very few VM's (4 or 5) that I would like to schedule a backup to happen nightly like the other jobs, as well as around noon everyday to have a little better backup frequency. I'm struggling with figuring out the best way to do this in the scheduling portion of the job. Could I just choose backup periodically, choose 1 hour, and then only highlight midnight and noon on the schedule portion? I thought maybe that would work but didn't know what would happen if the backup didn't finish up in that window.

Hi Josh, why not select to backup periodically every 12 hours? This will ensure the job starts at noon and midnight.

With this method how would you be sure it ran at midnight and noon? What would keep it from running say at 3AM and 3PM?

Reference point for every allowed interval is tied to midnight.
