The most significant fields in the time parameter are optional. If you omit the most significant fields, the
values are assumed to be the same as the current time. For example, if the current time is September 24,
2004, 22:00 hours, then the commands are executed as follows:
If the time interval configured for any schedule is smaller than the time taken to execute its assigned
job(s), then the subsequent schedule execution occurs only after the configured interval amount of time
has elapsed following the completion time of the last iteration of the schedule. For example, a schedule
is executed at 1-minute intervals and a job assigned to it takes 2 minutes to complete. If the first schedule
is at 22:00 hours, the job finishes at 22:02 after which, the 1-minute interval is observed and the next
execution occurs at 22:03 and finishes at 22:05.
Specifying a One-Time Schedule
When you specify a one-time job execution, that job is only executed once
To specify a one-time job for the command scheduler, follow these steps:
switch# conf t
switch(config)# scheduler schedule name configureVsan99
OL-16184-01, Cisco MDS SAN-OS Release 3.x
The time start 23:00 repeat 4:00:00 command implies a start time of September 24, 2004, 23:00
The time daily 55 command implies every day at 22:55 hours.
The time weekly 23:00 command implies every Friday at 23:00 hours.
The time monthly 23:00 command implies the 24th of every month at 23:00 hours.
Configuring the Command Scheduler
Executes the specified jobs at 11 p.m. every day.
Specifies a weekly execution every Sunday at 11 p.m.
Specifies a monthly execution at 11 p.m on the 28th of
each month. If you specify the date as either 29, 30, or
31, the command is automatically executed on the last
day of each month.
Specifies a job to be executed every 48 hours
beginning 2 minutes from now —if today is
September 24, 2004, and the time is now 2:00 p.m.,
the command begins executing at 2 minutes past 2:00
p.m. on September 24, 2004, and continues to execute
every 48 hours after that.
If today is September 24, 2004, (Friday), this
command specifies the job to be executed every
alternate Friday at 2 p.m. (every 14 days).
Enters the configuration mode.
Defines a job schedule
(configureVsan99) and enters the
submode for that schedule.
