Answer

The scheduled SnapCenter backup job is triggered by Windows Task Scheduler.

When protecting a resource with a policy having a schedule frequency, SnapCenter creates a task with Windows Task Scheduler.

  • For SnapCenter Plug-in for VMware vSphere (SCV) and SnapCenter for Oracle (SCO), the task is created on SnapCenter server host.
  • For SnapCenter Plug-in for Windows (SCW), SnapCenter for Exchange Server (SCE), and SnapCenter for SQL Server (SCSQL), the task is created on backup target hosts.


The naming rule for task scheduler job is "SnapCenter_RG-<Resource_Group_ID>_POLICY-_<Policy_ID>_<Frequency>".
IDs for resource groups and policies can be confirmed with "Get-SmResourceGroup" and "Get-SmPolicy" Cmdlets.
