Snapcreator Schedules: Monthly Policy with frequency weekly?

brauntvr2swiss

Hi All

I want Create a Monthly Schedule with frequency monthly. But only the following frequencies are selecteable:

once

hourly

daily

weekly

cron

No frequency monthly is available, right?

So I have to use "Windows Task Scheduler" for creating a Job with a monthly frequency?

TIA

Thomas

We are adding a monthly option but for now use cron. Our task scheduler is very powerful as it comes with its own built-in cron mode which works on windows and unix and isnt dependent on cron, we just call it that since it is similar.

Here are examples of how to set the cron scheduler in SC, please give this a try:

http://www.quartz-scheduler.org/documentation/quartz-1.x/tutorials/crontrigger

SC scheduler is 100X better than task manager

This for example would run on last day of every month at 10:15am

0 15 10 L * ?

You can use the cron option.

Here is the documentation on how to setup the schedule.

Hi Kapil/Keith

Thanks for the quick answer... Its great to become useful solutions in such a short Time .

I dont have understand this cron "Thing". I have thinked this is for SC Server running on UNIX Systems only.

But after your explanation its clearly for me and cron is perfectly for our Environment.....

Greetz,Thanks and have a nice Weekend
