About Cloud Backup default schedule managed in Cloud Manager

Hello people

 

just a quick question about the daily schedule of backups for Cloud Backup service.

 

It is not clear within the documentation https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/occm/task_managing_backups.html#viewing-the-volumes-that-are-being-backed-up

so here lies the question.

 

"Changing the schedule and backup retention.

The default policy backs up volumes every day and retains the most recent 30 backup copies of each volume. You can change to a combination of hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly backups and you can change the number of backup copies to retain. You can also select one of the system-defined policies that provide scheduled backups for 3 months, 1 year, and 7 years...."

 

is there a way to change the time to start the daily scheduled backup?  or it has to begin at 00:00:000?

 

Thanks in advance

Best Regards

According to this doc, published today.

Backups are taken at midnight. You can’t schedule backup operations at a user-specified time from the UI. The start time is based on the time zone set on each source ONTAP system.
