Create a replication job schedule
Whether you are replicating data from Element to ONTAP or from ONTAP to Element, you need to configure a job schedule, specify a policy, and create and initialize the relationship. You can use a default or custom policy.
You can use the
job schedule cron create command to create a replication job schedule. The job schedule determines when SnapMirror automatically updates the data protection relationship to which the schedule is assigned.
You assign a job schedule when you create a data protection relationship. If you do not assign a job schedule, you must update the relationship manually.
Create a job schedule:
job schedule cron create -name job_name -month month -dayofweek day_of_week -day day_of_month -hour hour -minute minute
-hour, you can specify
allto run the job every month, day of the week, and hour, respectively.
Beginning with ONTAP 9.10.1, you can include the Vserver for your job schedule:
job schedule cron create -name job_name -vserver Vserver_name -month month -dayofweek day_of_week -day day_of_month -hour hour -minute minute
The following example creates a job schedule named
my_weeklythat runs on Saturdays at 3:00 a.m.:
cluster_dst::> job schedule cron create -name my_weekly -dayofweek "Saturday" -hour 3 -minute 0
