zmschedulebackup

(Network Edition only)

This command is used to schedule backups and add the command to your cron table.

The default schedule is as follows:

Full backup, every Sunday at 1:00 a.m. (0 1 * * 0)

Incremental backup, Monday through Saturday at 1:00 a.m. (0 1 * * 1-6)

Each crontab entry is a single line composed of five fields separated by a blank space. Specify the fields as follows:

minute 0 through 59

hour 0 through 23

day of month 1 through 31

month 1 through 12

day of week 0 through 7 (0 or 7 is Sunday)

Type an asterisk (*) in the fields you are not using.

This command automatically writes the schedule to the crontab.
