job schedule cron modify

Modify a cron schedule

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The job schedule cron modify command modifies a cron schedule. A cron schedule, like a UNIX cron job, runs at a specified time. You can also specify months, days of the month, or days of the week on which the schedule runs. Use the job schedule cron show command to display all current cron schedules. See the documentation for job schedule cron show for more information about how cron schedules work.

Modifying one parameter of a cron schedule does not affect the other parameters. For example, if cron schedule is set to run at 3:15 AM, and you modify the "hour" parameter to 4, the schedule's new time will be 4:15am. To clear a parameter of the schedule's interval, you must explicitly set that portion to "0" or "-" Some parameters can also be set to "all".
