Specifying Backup Schedule

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

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

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


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


  • <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 the veeamconfig job list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Jobs.

Specifying Backup Schedule Tip:

To view IDs of all existent backup jobs, you can press the Tab key right after you type the --jobid option.

  • <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 --jobid 4849a3ae-1935-4969-98a3-d8acd2f6c73f --weekdays Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday --at 20:00
