Change run time of Cron job

Hi Team;

    As described in Alfresco tutorial  'Community Edition includes a background job responsible for backing up the Solr 6 indexes that (by default) is configured to run at 3am each night'.

   And ' the cron job is run at 2 am for alfrescoCore and 4 am for archiveCore'

   My question is that how to change the run time of Cron job?

   Thanks a lot!

Re: Change run time of Cron job

Hi,

You can try to modify the following properties on the alfresco-global.properties file: 

- solr.backup.alfresco.cronExpression

- solr.backup.archive.cronExpression

You need to set the time using UNIX format about when you want that the each backup is done.

If that changes don't work, I think you will have to change the configuration on Solr Service.

Please, try it and answer me.

Hi:

I'm not sure at what time are you trying to do SOLR backups.

Although the property is labeled as a cronjob, it is a quartz job, so the first number in the expression are seconds.

<second> <minute> <hour> <day of the month> <month> <day of the week> <year>

By the way, in last versions of ASS 2.0.x, the backup remote location is set in solrcore.properties (not in alfresco-global.properties).

Regards.

Hi,

   Thank you so much for your reply.

   At this time, the Cron job working properly as following picture.

   But the property 'backup remote location' still not work.

  Even I  added below two properties in following four solrcore.properties files :

     solr.backup.alfresco.remoteBackupLocation=D:/Alfresco/alfresco-community72/alf_data/solr6Backup/alfresco
     solr.backup.archive.remoteBackupLocation=D:/Alfresco/alfresco-community72/alf_data/solr6Backup/archive

   

    *\alfresco-search-services\solrhome\alfresco\conf\solrcore.properties
    *\alfresco-search-services\solrhome\archive\conf\solrcore.properties
    *\alfresco-search-services\solrhome\templates\noRerank\conf\solrcore.properties
    *\alfresco-search-services\solrhome\templates\rerank\conf\solrcore.properties
