Backup Schedule: Active Full Backups not Running

Post by johntnavi » Feb 17, 2013 1:39 pm

Backup Schedule,

Noticed a small problem, I have 4 jobs scheduled to run everyday with full active backups scheduled for the Saturday. Since I have the jobs scheduled to start after each other job the first one completes the full active but the other 3 never perform the full active. I am assuming this is becuase they dont actually start because the first job doesnt complete until sometime after midnight Sunday morning and the other jobs actually begin on Sunday morning. Is there a way around this as I really like having the jobs start one right after the other. Here is my schedule.

Job 1 starts at 10PM Full Completes
Job 2 Follows Job 1 Full never completes but incremental runs
Job 3 Follows Job 2 Full never completes but incremental runs
Job 4 Follows Job 3 Full never completes but incremental runs

Hi John,

Ok, in this case why not to schedule full backups for these jobs to run on Sunday then?

Thanks!

Yes it was that easy, thanks. I just assumed that since the initial backup started on Saturday the others would have followed the start date.
