Queuing Jobs

You can set jobs to be queued so that the jobs remain in the Job Controller in a queued state instead of failing. After the condition that caused the job to be queued clears, the Job Manager automatically resumes the job. Options to queue jobs are available in the Control Panel and at the client level.

All Data Protection, Data Recovery, Data Collection, Administration Operations jobs can be queued.

Note: The software does not queue SQL transaction log backups that are part of a SQL Server client application-aware backup.

Control Panel Options

  1. From the CommCell Console ribbon, click the Home tab, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Under the Data section, click Job Management.

    The Job Management dialog box appears.

  3. On the General tab, select the queuing options:
    • To queue jobs if they conflict with other currently running jobs, select the Queue jobs if other conflicting jobs are active check box.

      For example, jobs are queued if multiple backup operations are running for the same subclient.

    • To queue jobs if the activity control for the job type is disabled, select the Queue Jobs if activity is disabled check box.
    • To queue scheduled jobs, select the Queue Scheduled Jobs check box.

      Scheduled jobs will start in the Job Controller in a queued state at their scheduled time. Manually resume these jobs, or clear the Queue Scheduled Jobs check box to resume the scheduled jobs automatically.

      Tip: Select this option during maintenance periods.

  4. Click OK.

Client Level Option

  1. From the CommCell Console ribbon, right-click the client, and then click Properties.

    The Client Computer Properties dialog box appears.

  2. Click Advanced.

    The Advanced Client Properties dialog box appears.

  3. To queue jobs if they conflict with other currently running jobs, on the Job Configuration tab, select Queue jobs if other conflicting jobs are active.

    For example, jobs are queued if multiple backup operations are running for the same subclient.

  4. Click OK.
