epoulin Posted March 16, 2005 Report Share Posted March 16, 2005 I'm running into a little problem that I can work around manually, but would like to know if there is an automatic setting in Retrospect 7.0 for Windows (Single Server, newest updates as of 3/16). I'm running a pretty standard Grandfather-Father-Son backup rotation, with the Grandfather falling at the last day of the month (rotating through 4 tapes). Father is set to backup every Friday (rotating through 4 tapes). Son is set to backup Monday-Thursday with a tape for each day. All backup are set to start at 9pm each night. The Father and Son schedules don't conflict at all since they are set for separate repeating days of the week, but obviously the last day of the month falls on various days as the year goes on. This results in two scripts being scheduled for the same day at the same time once a month. I was hoping that there was a way to set Script Precedence so that if two scripts fall on the same day, one script is run, and the other is skipped. For instance, March 31st is a Thursday, so the Grandfather for March and the Son for Thursday are set to run that night. I can go in and skip that script manually, but it would be nice if it could do it automatically. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
