Step 5. Define Job Schedule
At the Schedule step of the wizard, you can instruct Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV to start the snapshot job automatically according to a specific job schedule. The schedule defines how often Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV will create snapshots of the VMs added to the snapshot job.
To help you implement a comprehensive data protection strategy, Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV allows you to create schedules of the following types:
- Daily at this time — the snapshot job will create restore points at a specific time on specific days.
- Monthly at this time — the snapshot job will create restore points once a month on a specific day.
- Periodically every — the snapshot job will create restore points repeatedly, with a specific time interval every day.
You can instruct Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV to run the snapshot job again if it fails on the first try. To do that, select the Automatic Retry check box, and specify the maximum number of attempts to run the job and the time interval between retries. When retrying snapshot jobs, Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV processes only those VMs whose snapshots were not taken during the previous attempt..
