How to schedule image creation in Acronis True Image Server for Linux


As a rule it is recommended strategy to create disk/partition images regularly, daily, for example.


To automate this operation in the command line interface, you can use the cron service familiar to many UNIX users.

Under X-Windows, you may use a more powerful Schedule Task wizard, which allows you to not only create scheduled backups, but automatically suspend databases using pre/post backup commands, send notifications by e-mail, set backup priority etc.
