automate the 'pause' schedule in Forge 3.1


I'd like to automate the pausing of a custom schedule that I've set up
on the Forge 3.1 for all the workloads. Does anyone know what service
is associated with this function? Or do I have to find an 'config' file
and use an automated script to change it? Currently I have to manually
tick and pause all the schedules on a Friday afternoon and then restart
them again on a Monday morning due to conflicts with other backup
services. I already have one blackout period setup - each evening
between 7pm and 8am to allow for the nightly backups so I can't add
another blackout for the weekend. Hope someone can help me think of a
solution.

There is no way to automate pausing the schedules. Even if there was,
wouldn't it be simpler to just modify the custom schedule (or create a
new one) for those workloads so it doesn't run over the weekend? You
can either set it to daily -> every weekday or weekly -> Mon, Tue, Wed,
Thu, Fri.

there is no way to set up 2 blackouts. One over night and one over
weekend. Having a custome schudule to run every day means once a day
and we run the replication hourly 🙂

Ah, that was information missing from the original post - that you run
an hourly replication.

I recommend you file a feature request at www.novell.com/rms. That
being said, you could set up a script to stop the PlateSpin Operations
Framework Controller service, or the PlateSpin Management service
(either will do for this). Then use the scheduled tasks functionality
in Windows to have the script run at certain times. It's not the ideal
solution (you would actually also need a second script to start the
service/s when needed), but it would effectively stop anything from
happening during the period that the service is stopped.

Yes you are right sorry.

And thanks I was thinking of setting up a script and schedule it to stop
one of the services, so will give that a go! I can manually restart the
service on Monday but I really need to automate the stopping in case I
forget or am on leave as our backup app is using VSS snapshots and this
is causing conflict with the platespin block level replications. I'll
let you know how it goes. thanks again.
