ONTAP 9.14

to Japanese version

Schedule an on-demand task

You can create a task without assigning a schedule and use the vserver vscan on-demand-task schedule command to assign a schedule; or add a schedule while creating the task.

About this task

The schedule assigned with the vserver vscan on-demand-task schedule command overrides a schedule already assigned with the vserver vscan on-demand-task create command.

  1. Schedule an on-demand task:

    vserver vscan on-demand-task schedule -vserver data_SVM -task-name task_name -schedule cron_schedule

    The following command schedules an on-access task named Task2 on the vs2 SVM:

    cluster1::> vserver vscan on-demand-task schedule -vserver vs2 -task-name Task2 -schedule daily
    [Job 142]: Vscan On-Demand job is queued. Use the "job show -id 142" command to view the status.

    To view the status of the job, use the job show command. The job pause and job resume commands, respectively pause and restart the job; the job stop command terminates the job.

  2. Verify that the on-demand task has been scheduled:

    vserver vscan on-demand-task show -instance data_SVM -task-name task_name

    For a complete list of options, see the man page for the command.

    The following command displays the details for the Task 2 task:

    cluster1::> vserver vscan on-demand-task show -instance vs2 -task-name Task2
                               Vserver: vs2
