Thread: Backup Job Schedule - Exclude Weekends

  1. Backup Job Schedule - Exclude Weekends

    Testing Backup Exec to move away from ArcServeIT. Is there a way to
    schedule a recurring daily job in Backup Exec, but exclude Saturdays and
    Sundays from the recurring schedule? If so, how? This was an option in
    ArcServeIT, so you don't need to create 5 jobs for M-F. Just wondering.

    Thanks!

    Susanne

    Yeah. Not intuitive or well documented. See my thread Adding Holidays in

    Thanks Bill!

    "To set up a job to repeat mon-fri, on an existing or new policy (not
    through the wizard), select "Every 1 week" as the repeat interval, then in
    "Backup Method", select the days you want the backup to run, and what kind
    of backup you want."

    That works!
