    Schedule a report using cron

    rb51


      Hi all,

       

      I am trying to schedule a report to run every 4 hours (every day) and spit out VMs with active snapshots. I have got the this same report using powershell, but as we have VMAN, I want to make the most of it.

       

      To achieve this I am using the out of box report: VMs With Snapshots, then schedule a cron as follows:

       

      I have tried to use the conventional cron syntax: 01 */4 * * *

       

      but might need to add Seconds http://knowledgebase.solarwinds.com/kb/questions/4058/Cannot+create+a+new+scheduled+report+with+the+Cron+option

       

      therefore my final syntax reads as follows:

       

      seconds minutes hours dayofmonth month dayofweek

      cron-snap.JPG

       

      however I get the following error:cron-snap1.JPGI have checked time, etc and it is all okay

       

      Could someone assist me please??

       

      thanks in advance, rb51
