Customizing nightly jobs for a protected machine

Nightly jobs can be configured at the Core level or at the machine level. When nightly jobs 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, and apply only to 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 Machines menu, click the IP address or machine name for the machine for which you want to customize nightly jobs.
    The Summary page for the selected machine appears.
  2. Click the Settings menu.

    The Settings page appears, showing configuration settings for the selected machine.

  3. Optionally, click the Nightly Jobs link to scroll down in the Settings page to view nightly jobs settings.
  4. Under the Nightly Jobs heading, click [Change] 

    The Nightly Jobs dialog box appears.

  5. In the Nightly Jobs dialog box, select the jobs you want to include to run nightly, or clear the options you want to omit for this machine.

    NOTE: Options may vary by machine. For example, a protected machine using Exchange Server may include Check checksum of Exchange databases and Truncate Exchange logs.


    NOTE: For information about the Rollup setting, including setting a custom retention policy, see Customizing retention policy settings for a protected machine.

  6. Click OK.

    NOTE: The results of this procedure apply only to the selected protected machine. To apply elsewhere, repeat the procedure for each machine you want to customize. To change the nightly job settings for all machines protected by a Core, see Configuring nightly jobs for the Core.
