Answer

Cluster configuration backup is using three default schedules: 8hour, daily and weekly:

::*> system configuration backup settings show -instance
Backup Destination URL: -
Username for Destination: -
Schedule 1: 8hour
Number of Backups to Keep for Schedule 1: 2
Schedule 2: daily
Number of Backups to Keep for Schedule 2: 2
Schedule 3: weekly
Number of Backups to Keep for Schedule 3: 2

It is not possible to use custom schedules but the default schedules can be adjusted with “job schedule cron modify -name <schedule_name>” command.

Note: this will affect all other jobs (like creating snapshots) that are using these schedules.

For example:

::*> job schedule show -name daily
Cluster       Name         Type     Description
------------- ----------- --------- -------------------------------------------
Cluster1
              daily       cron      @0:10

::*> job schedule cron modify -name daily -hour 14 -minute 15

::*> job schedule show -name daily
Cluster       Name         Type     Description
------------- ----------- --------- -------------------------------------------
Cluster1
              daily       cron      @14:15
