|Advanced management / Scheduling tasks|
To create tasks in the Task Scheduler, you need the security officer rights Use task scheduler and Manage tasks.
The Task Scheduler dialog is displayed.
The New task dialog is displayed.
If the task name is not unique, a warning is displayed when you click OK to save the task.
The drop-down list only shows servers for which scripting is allowed. You allow scripting for a specific server when you register it in the Configuration Package Tool in the SafeGuard Management Center.
If you select None, the task is not executed.
The Select script file to import dialog is displayed.
If the script selected is empty, the OK button in the dialog remains disabled and a warning symbol is displayed.
The start time displayed is rendered using the local time of the computer on which the SafeGuard Management Center is running. Internally, the start time is stored as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). This allows tasks to be executed at the same moment, even if servers are in different time zones. All servers use the current time of the database server to determine when to start tasks. To allow better monitoring of tasks, the database reference time is displayed in the Task Scheduler dialog.
To run the task once, select One time and specify the required Date.
To run the task daily, select Daily followed by Every day (including Saturday and Sunday) or Every weekday (Monday - Friday).
To run the task weekly, select Weekly and specify the required day of the week.
To run the task monthly, select Monthly and specify the required day of the month in a range from 1 to 31. To run the task at the end of each month, select Last from the drop-down list.
After you have filled in all mandatory fields, the OK button becomes available.
