Scheduled Task Question

I see that there are pre-defined scheduled tasks in the system. Is there any way to add a custom task (bash script) or does that need to be done the old fashoned way by adding it, manually, to /etc/crontab?


@cmaurand Welcome to the Rockstor community.

We don’t as yet have custom scheduled tasks but we have the following issue open for this:

part of which has been completed by @Flyer with regard to scheduled shutdown / resume but we don’t as yet have user script scheduling capability via the Web-UI.

You might also like to have a look at the referenced forum thread (within that issue) where a number of forum regulars discussed this same feature:

Hope that helps.

Thank you. I’m actually using this system to back up a windows server. I installed CIFS-Utils can mount the drive and rsync contents over from it. That’s a fairly simple bash script to mount the drive and rsync it’s contents from the server. would that I could snapshot the windows machine, but I digress.

Thanks for your reply. Will do this by editing the crontab
