asked on

I want to schedule a DB backup every 12 months (e.g. on Jan1 and July1)

I'm not sure how to specify the schedule. I tried "monthly on day 1 of every 12 months", but it seemed to do one each successive month. What is correct?

Hi,

Maybe this is just me, but don't you want it every 6 months? Jan 1 and July 1 being six monthly.

Cheers

I tried this, and it seemed that it was repeating on the first of each month, but may have been my mistake. I will have to wait a month to see if it skips month 2, so I will accept the soln now. I want a bup in Jan and another in July (2 per yr), so will run 2 tasks.
