Scheduling Job

Scheduling Job

Scheduling Job

I setup a full backup job and selected a Monday thru Friday full backup schedule. The second week I modified the job scheduled for Monday night so that it would run early Tuesday morning at 2AM. (The tape had not be used prior to that night's backup.) The job complete successfully but the tape was labeled Tuesday. At this point I was left with two Tuesday tapes, one in the scratch set, one in the save set. The next night I ran an erase on the original Tuesday tape so that I could be sure that a backup would run regardless of the tape name or ID. Wednesday morning no job had run. Did the scheduler think that the job I scheduled late Monday was Tuesday's job? If so how can you avoid this problem when resceduling individual jobs after midnight? What should I do at this point to correct my backup schedule? Should I start from scratch? I need big time help?
