In this article

    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.
