Issues With Scheduled Backup Jobs and Daylight Savings Time Change

Following daylight savings time change, some backup applications will modify the scheduled backup job start time to preserve a 24-hour time gap between the current and previous day’s job. In particular, CoNetrix has determined Veritas’ Backup Exec version 9.x and greater will push the scheduled backup job back one hour from the original start time. For example, a backup job typically scheduled to start at 10:00pm on Monday will start at 11:00pm on Monday. This may cause conflicts with overlapping scheduled jobs. Veritas states that the problem should automatically correct itself following the first run after the time change. Users should check their scheduled backup jobs to ensure the start time for each job is correct.
