Step 9. Specify Backup Schedule
At the Schedule step of the wizard, specify the schedule according to which you want to perform backup.
In the Free and Workstation editions of Veeam Agent, you can set the backup job to run automatically on specific days of the week. In the Server edition of Veeam Agent, you can schedule the backup job to run on specific days of the week or month, as well as periodically. Monthly and periodic schedules for a backup job can be specified in the command line interface only. For details, see Specifying Backup Schedule.
To specify the schedule, do the following:
- Make sure that the Run the job automatically check box is selected.
If you want to configure the backup job without schedule, you can clear the Run the job automatically check box. In this case you will be able start the configured backup job manually at any time you need.
- In the Daily at field, specify the time of day when the backup job must start.
- In the list of days of the week, specify days on which the job must start. By default, Veeam Agent will start the backup job daily at the specified time. To exclude specific days from the schedule, clear check boxes next to the necessary days.
Veeam Agent for Linux will save the scheduling settings for the backup job in its database Veeam Agent can start a backup job automatically regardless of the currently running user session. You can change schedule settings at any time in Veeam Agent.
