Customizing nightly jobs for a protected machine

Nightly jobs can be configured at the Core level and the machine level on the appropriate Configuration tab. When nightly job settings are set at the Core level, the changes are applied to all relevant machines protected by that Core. Changes made to the nightly jobs at the machine level supersede the changes made at the Core level, only for the machines specified.

For a list of all nightly jobs, including descriptions and the scope available for each, see the topic Understanding nightly jobs.

Complete the steps in the following procedure to make changes to the nightly jobs for a single protected machine.

  1. In the Rapid Recovery Core Console, under the Protected Machines menu, click the IP address or machine name for the machine for which you want to customize nightly jobs.
