Backup retention

Good afternoon,
With which command you change the retention time of the backups to a certain number of days.
Thank you

Depends on what backup you are using. For legacy backup the command is "zmschedulebackup" and then you need to add the days for rotation. You can see more info here ... ition_only

If you are using backup_ng, then you could use "zxsuite backup setproperty" (do a getproperties first to see under what name the retention is saved and change accordingly). I'm going by memory easiest way to go with backup_ng is via adminUI.

Good luck,
