Nsradmin

I need to create schedules, with FULL backups on 1st and 3rd Friday of every month, trying to come up with easiest way of doing it. I am thinking nsradmin but can't figure out the right syntax. Anyone help me out with this.

Re: Nsradmin

Not sure how to do it in nsradmin but ... from NMC:

go to Configuration - Schedules

right mouse button click on existing schedule

uncheck the "Show Schedule as Calendar" option

copy schedule to new name

in "Create Schedule" dialog box ...

supply Comment text

in Configuration pane click Period: "Month"

in Configuration pane Action: window enter 31 "inc" or "skip" values with a space seperating each day ... see below:

incr incr incr incr incr incr incr
incr incr incr incr incr incr incr
incr incr incr incr incr incr incr
incr incr incr incr incr incr incr
incr incr incr

in Overrides - Override: enter the following values:

full first friday every month
full third friday every month

save the new Schedule with the OK button ... optional ... right mouse button click on new Schedule and turn back on "Show Schedule as Calendar" option

Re: Nsradmin

As jcmps pointed out, this is a lot easier from the GUI, but if you really want to do this from nsradmin, then the best thing is to query the existing 'NSR schedule' resource 'print type : NSR schedule' and this will show you the syntax for the existing resources and therefore what you are going to need for a new one.   There's a useful document on Powerlink:

Home  >  Support  >  Technical Documentation and Advisories  > Software ~ J-O ~ Documentation  >  NetWorker Family  > Technical Notes

called 'Special Uses for the NetWorker nsradmin Program Technical Note' which gives instructions and examples of using nsradmin for some tasks.  This particular task is not mentioned, but combined with the information provided by jcmps, you should be able to figure this out.
