Specifying Backup Schedule

You can schedule a backup job to start at specific time daily or on specific week days.

Specifying Daily Schedule

To specify daily schedule settings for the backup job, use the following command:

veeamconfig schedule set --jobid <job_id> --daily --at <time>

or

veeamconfig schedule set --jobname <job_name> --daily --at <time>

where:

  • <job_id> — ID of the backup job for which you want to configure the schedule. You should look up the job ID in advance, before configuring the schedule, for example, with the veeamconfig job list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Jobs.
  • <job_name> — name of the backup job for which you want to configure the schedule.
  • <time>time of day when the backup job must start specified in the HH:MM format. For example: 20:00.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig schedule set --jobid 4849a3ae-1935-4969-98a3-d8acd2f6c73f --daily --at 20:00

 

Specifying Schedule on Specific Days

To specify schedule settings for the backup job, use the following command:

veeamconfig schedule set --jobid <job_id> --weekdays <days> --at <time>

or

veeamconfig schedule set --jobname <job_name> --weekdays <days> --at <time>

where:

  • <job_id> — ID of the backup job for which you want to configure the schedule. You should look up the job ID in advance, before configuring the schedule, for example, with the veeamconfig job list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Jobs.
  • <job_name> — name of the backup job for which you want to configure the schedule.
  • <days> — days when the backup job must start separated by a comma (','). For example: Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday.
  • <time>time of day when the backup job must start specified in the HH:MM format. For example: 20:00.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig schedule set --jobname DailyBackup --weekdays Monday,Wednesday,Friday --at 20:00

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
