This attribute is provided for the administrator to keep any explanatory
remarks or supplementary information about the schedule.
This attribute specifies the length of the schedule's period. It may
be either "Week" or "Month". "Week" schedules repeat every 7 days and
start on Sunday. "Month" schedules start over at the first of each
month. The default is "Week."
This attribute specifies the sequence of save levels making up the
schedule. One entry is used for each day of the schedule. The
entries must be separated by whitespace, i.e., blanks or tabs. The
valid levels are "consolidate," "full," "incr," "skip," and the numbers
1 through 9. The actions consolidate, full, incr, and skip may be
abbreviated "c," "f," "i," and "s," respectively.
When the action attribute does not contain enough entries to account
for every day in the period, NetWorker will repeat the list of actions
when the end of the action list is reached.

The following defines a
resource named "Default." The Default schedule may be modified, but
it may not be deleted. Each NetWorker server must have a Default

The following defines a schedule named "quarterly." It has a period
of one month. The action attribute specifies level 5, 9, and
incremental saves. In the override attribute, full saves are
specified for the first day of each quarter. Note that there are only
7 entries in the action attribute. Upon reaching the end of the list,
NetWorker will start over at the beginning of the list, performing a
level 5 save.
