override schedule for a single day

Hello all,

I'm running on DP 10.30 and I would like to override for a specific day (for example next Wednesday, May the 15th) that the backups that are scheduled in the early night run later in the morning or earlier (late evening of the 14th).

right now one of the scheduled jobs migrate file is:

-incr 
-every
	-day Sun Mon Wed Thu Fri Sat 
	-at 02:30

-full 
-every
	-day Tue 
	-at 02:30

I would like to do that modifying directly the conf files instead of passing through the gui.

thank you very much

best regards

Nicola

Hi @nschwendener,

To skip a specifc day you need to add an entry for the day in question.

-exclude

Re: override schedule for a single day

Hello @Sebastian.Koehler ,

thank you very much for your reply. I really appreciate your answer. I would like to know:

  1. should I restart the services in order to apply the changes?
  2. there's a way not to exclude the backup job but to deferr the job to another time frame?

thank you very much

best regards

Nicola

Re: override schedule for a single day

Hi @nschwendener,


should I restart the services in order to apply the changes?

This is not required. The files are parsed and processed every 1 (or 15 minutes) based on the global option setting SchedulerGranularity.

there's a way not to exclude the backup job but to deferr the job to another time frame?


To do this you need to modify the existing entries in the schedule file and use the exclude if required. You might adjust the starting value for existing schedules.

-full 
-starting 20 5 2019
-every
	-day 
	-at 18:00
