Sets the current schedule for backups.


   [-Policy] <WBPolicy>
   [-Schedule] <DateTime[]>


The Set-WBSchedule cmdlet sets the current schedule for backups and saves the settings in the WBPolicy object.

The WBPolicy object must be in edit mode. To put the WBPolicy object in edit mode, use the Get-WBPolicy cmdlet with the Editable parameter. The New-WBPolicy cmdlet creates a WBPolicy object that is already in edit mode.

To use this cmdlet, you must be a member of the Administrators group or Backup Operators group.


Example 1: Set a backup policy schedule

PS C:\> $Policy = Get-WBPolicy
PS C:\> Set-WBSchedule -Policy $Policy -Schedule 12:00,09:00

This example sets the scheduled times to create backups and saves the information in the WBPolicy object. When you set this policy on the computer, backups are created daily at the specified times.

The first command stores the result of the Get-WBPolicy in the variable named $Policy.

The second command sets the backup schedule in the $Policy variable. The Schedule parameter indicates the times.
