Configuring the Job Start Time for a Server


On this page

You can configure the time of day that you want to initiate scheduled jobs for a server. The time zone of the server is used for the job start time.

If the job start time that you set is not within the time period that is set in the backup window or the full backup window for the associated plan, then the software considers the next available time within the window as the start time for backup jobs.

If you do not specify a job start time, then the software considers the RPO (Recovery Point Objective) settings of the plan that the subclient or backup set is associated with.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Manage > Servers.

    The Servers page appears.

  2. Click the server that you want to configure a job start time for.

    The server properties page appears.

    Under General area, by default the Job start time is set to System default.

  3. To configure a different job start time, click the edit icon, specify a time, and then save the time.
