Specifying Backup Schedule

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

Specifying Daily Schedule

To specify daily schedule settings for the backup policy, 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 policy for which you want to configure the schedule. You should look up the policy ID in advance, before configuring the schedule, for example, with the veeamconfig job list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Policies.
  • <job_name> — name of the backup policy for which you want to configure the schedule.

 

  • <time> — time of day when the backup policy must start specified in the HH:MM format. For example: 20:00.

For example:

user@wrk01:~$ 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 policy, 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 policy for which you want to configure the schedule. You should look up the policy ID in advance, before configuring the schedule, for example, with the veeamconfig job list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Policies.
  • <job_name> — name of the backup policy for which you want to configure the schedule.
  • <days> — days when the backup policy must start separated by a comma (','). For example: Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday.
  • <time> — time of day when the backup policy must start specified in the HH:MM format. For example: 20:00.

For example:

user@wrk01:~$ veeamconfig schedule set --jobName DailyBackup --weekdays Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday --at 20:00

 

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

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