custom scheduling

custom scheduling

Has anyone got some defined instructions on custom scheduling in EDM.
Can you back date custom schedules?
From where does the start date begin if you have a
28 day rotation period?
does EDM assume that the working week starts on sunday?
If your rotaion begins midweek, when it gets to the saturday does it wrap round to the sunday on the same line or does it move to the sunday on the next line?

RE: custom scheduling

I don't believe you can back date custom schedules but I will check on this and update when I have the answer.
A custom schedule start date is relative to the day it is created.
You can configure custom scheduling to be relative to a day of the week or simply a day number within the rotation period. If for example you created a schedule on a Wed. and you chose only to run backups on Sunday's, the Sunday in the custom schedule GUI represents the first, second or whatever Sunday within the rotation. So in this case, the first Wed. through Sat you would have no backups but on the first and subsequent Sunday's, a backup would be scheduled. There is no guarantee that within a given rotation there would be a total of 4 Sundays invloved unless you actually created the schedule on a Sunday. All other days within the 28 rotation period in this case would result in no backups being performed even if the schedule is activated. If you configured for day number rather than day of the week, it would not do any day of the week comparison and simply initiate a backup based on the selcted day number within the rotation relative to the start date of the rotation.

Hope this helps....
