Adding and Removing Backup Schedules

Adding and Removing Backup Schedules

Owners of desktop/laptop backup accounts can choose whether or not to have a weekly automated backup schedule.

1. Adding a backup schedule

  1. Go to the HFS Portal.
  2. Click on your node in the list of nodes to take you to its node details page.
  3. Click on Add schedule in the Actions... menu
  4. Click OK in the Add weekly schedule popup.
  5. Ensure that the TSM scheduler service on your machine is started; otherwise, your scheduled backups will be missed.  Instructions for starting the TSM scheduler are available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
  6. The exact time of the backup slot will be decided on the night after the day that you added the schedule. To find out the time, see When is my scheduled backup due to run?.

2. Removing a backup schedule

  1. Stop the TSM scheduler service on your machine; otherwise, your machine will continue to connect to the HFS, looking for its schedule. Instructions for doing this are available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
  2. Go to the HFS Portal.
  3. Click on your node in the list of nodes to take you to its node details page.
  4. Click on Remove schedule in the Actions... menu
  5. Click OK in the Remove weekly schedule popup.
  6. From now on, you will no longer receive weekly e-mails about your backup schedule for the relevant backup account; you must instead remember to back up manually. Instructions for running manual backups are available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
