Schedules when an object replication runs.
  1. Navigate to Home > Data Protection > Object Replication to display the Object Replication page.
  2. Under the Schedules section, click add to display the Add Object Replication Schedule page.
    Field/Item Description
    Policy Allows you to identify the policy to which this schedule will apply.
    EVS / File system Displays the current source EVS and file system for the object replication.
    Replication Policy Selects the object replication policy to which this schedule will apply.
    Initial Run Allows you to specify when the policy should run for the first time.
    Immediately: Start as soon as the schedule is created Runs the associated policy as soon as the schedule is successfully created.
    Scheduled Runs the associated policy at the date and time specified in this section.
    • Time of Initial Run: Specify the time, using the 24-hour format (such that 11:59 PM will be entered as 23:59).
    • Date of Initial Run: Specify the date for the first run of the policy. Click the calendar next to the field, then select the start date for the policy’s initial run.
    Current Date and Time Provided for reference.
    Run Until (Optional) Allows you to specify a date and time after which the policy should no longer run.
    Run Until Time In this edit box, specify the last time (in 24-hour format) that the policy should be run. If you specify a time, you must also specify a Run Until Date.
    Run Until Date The date (year, month, and day) the replication runs for the last time. Click the calendar next to the field, then select the end date for the policy’s final run. The selected date appears on the field. This is an optional setting.
    Schedule Type Allows you to specify the interval, if any, between the repeated execution of the policy to which this schedule will apply.
    You can select any one of the following options:
    • Every X minutes, hours, or days: Schedules the replication to run at the specified interval. For example, if you set it to every 4 days, the policy will run again automatically 4 days after it last started.
    • Continuous. Pause X minutes, hours, or days between runs: Schedules the replication to run continuously, but the replication will pause between runs for the specified duration. For example, if you set it to pause for 1 day between runs, after the policy completes one cycle, it will pause for 1 day.
    • Once, at the scheduled date and time: The policy is scheduled to run only once, at the date and time specified in the Initial Run settings.
    • Test Only - at the scheduled date and time causes the replication policy to be tested: The object replication policy runs once, as a test only, at the time scheduled in the Initial Run field. During a test run, the system assesses if the object replication policy will run successfully as currently configured. The test also calculates the amount of data to be replicated. The results should be checked in the object replication Status & Reports page before scheduling an actual run.
      Note: A test may take a long time to run, depending on the size of the files system being replicated. Additionally, the results of a test run are not displays on the Status page. Only actual replication results are shown on the Status page; however, if you schedule and run the policy as a test only, error messages appear if the test fails.
