Hello,

I'm having an awful time figuring out how to change the time of an existing scheduled backup job with Brightstor ArcServe Backup 11.  I am only managing to find the option to reschedule the job, but it only reschedules it once, and then it goes back to the original time again.

Thanks for your help,
Mike

From within the Job Status window, right click on the job and select Modify. Then under the Schedule tab change the time you want the job to run. After making the change resubmit the job back into the queue.

The schedule tab only showed Repeat Method such as days of the week, but I noticed how the software added "Backup" to the topmost toolbar.  After clicking Backup, I was able to choose Run/Schedule, then authenticate to the domain ID used by Brightstor, then I was able to change the backup time.  Too bad it's not a little easier to figure out how to do this for first time users.  Thanks for your help.

OH so you are using a Custom job, yes the above is for Rotation and GFS jobs, for Custom it is as you found on the Submit Job window.

If there is an easier way, please let me know.  All we have is a single DLT drive where the tape is changed each day, and it is already setup where we choose to backup Mon thru Sat.

Easier way to do what? change the run time? only via the Job Status window which is only for that specific job. But if you want to change the job itself then it has to be modified and resubmitted.

Why do you need to change the run time often?

No, when you said a custom job was being used, it sounded like the original person who set it up went out of his/her way to create a backup job, unless that is how Brightstor works.  I am more familiar with BackupExec.  This is my first time using Brightstor, so I'm open to any suggestions for improvement.

The Rotation and GFS jobs are easier to set up in the sense that they have the most common backup methods all ready setup, so it is more like selecting the one you want. On the other hand Custom is much more flexible in how you can set it up.
