Hi Oscar,


I would follow the recommendation from the note below


Creating and Editing Backup Schedules

You can create up to 10 backup schedules. Each backup schedule has its own set of properties, including a schedule for automatic backups, the set of features to back up, and a storage location.


Caution     Schedule backups during off-peak hours to avoid call-processing interruptions and impact to service.

Perform the following steps to manage backup schedules:

Procedure


Step 1 Navigate to the Disaster Recovery System. Log in to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Disaster Recovery System from the Navigation menu in the upper, right corner of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration window, and click Go.

The Disaster Recovery System Logon window displays.

Step 2 Log in to the Disaster Recovery System by using the same Administrator username and password that you use for Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration.

Step 3 Navigate to Backup>Scheduler.

The Schedule List window displays.

Step 4 Do one of the following steps to add a new schedule or edit an existing schedule

a. To create a new schedule, click Add New.

b. To configure an existing schedule, click its name in the Schedule List column.

The scheduler window displays.

Step 5 Enter a schedule name in the Schedule Name field.


Note You cannot change the name of the default schedule.


Step 6 Select the backup device in the Select Backup Device area.

Step 7 Select the features to back up in the Select Features area. You must choose at least one feature.

Step 8 Choose the date and time when you want the backup to begin in the Start Backup at area.

Step 9 Choose the frequency at which you want the backup to occur in the Frequency area: Once, Daily, Weekly, or Monthly. If you choose Weekly, you can also choose the days of the week when the backup will occur.


Tip To set the backup frequency to Weekly, occurring Tuesday through Saturday, click Set Default.


Step 10 To update these settings, click Save.

Step 11 To enable the schedule, click Enable Schedule.

The next backup occurs automatically at the time that you set.


Note Ensure that all servers in the cluster are running the same version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and are reachable through the network. Servers that are not running at the time of the scheduled backup will not be backed up.


Step 12 To disable the schedule, click Disable Schedule.

If the backup process has nothing to do with phone service, why would we have to do this during off-peak hours?
