Scheduling SBACKUP jobs

I am in the process of setting up a Netware 5 server for a small company.  At the moment I am using the SBACKUP utility to perform server backups.  To simplify matters, I have set up just a single job, a full server backup.  However, SBACKUP doesn't let me just set the job to run at the same time every evening.

Even though NTBACKUP is limited, you can create a simple command file to define a job and use the schedule service to have it run at specific times.  Any chance that Netware will be this intuitive?

No. It is a very simple backup program. Not only can you not schedule backup times but you cannot backup both the file system and NDS in the same session.

If that's really the case then fair enough, I'll award you the points.  Is there honestly no scheduling service available for Netware?

If not, then I've a good mind to demand a refund on my software and licences and try and get NT instead.

You appear to have missed my point.  I know that Backup Exec and Arcserve are decent products, but I just want to back up a single server.  I don't even need to back up the NDS that often!  This is a site that consists of a single context, that contains a single object and I want to schedule a simple backup.

I'll ask again.  Does Netware have a scheduling utility built in?  If not, then it's crap and doesn't fulfil it's required purpose.

Yes there is a NLM, CRON which you can get at:
http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/patlstfind.cgi?2939440
which will allow you to run any command you can run from the console at any time you set.
See the Cron5.exe documentation. There is also a more advanced third party utility.
