Configuring a Recurring Task
You set the frequency for a recurring task using the same process for all types of tasks.
Note that the time displayed on most pages on the user interface is the local time, which is determined by using the time zone you specify in your local configuration. Further, the ASA FirePOWER module automatically adjusts its local time display for daylight saving time (DST), where appropriate. However, recurring tasks that span the transition dates from DST to standard time and back do not adjust for the transition. That is, if you create a task scheduled for 2:00 AM during standard time, it will run at 3:00 AM during DST. Similarly, if you create a task scheduled for 2:00 AM during DST, it will run at 1:00 AM during standard time.
To configure a recurring task:
In ASDM, select Configuration > ASA FirePOWER Configuration > Tools > Scheduling.
The Scheduling page appears.
Click Add Task.
The New Task page appears.
From the Job Type list, select the type of task that you want to schedule.
Each of the types of tasks you can schedule is explained in its own section.
For the Schedule task to run option, select Recurring.
The page reloads with the recurring task options.
In the Start On field, specify the date when you want to start your recurring task. You can use the drop-down list to select the month, day, and year.
In the Repeat Every field, specify how often you want the task to recur. You can specify a number of hours, days, weeks, or months.
In the Run At field, specify the time when you want to start your recurring task.
If you selected Weeks for Repeat Every, a Repeat On field appears. Select the check boxes next to the days of the week when you want to run the task.
If you selected Months for Repeat Every, a Repeat On field appears. Use the drop-down list to select the day of the month when you want to run the task.
The remaining options on the New Task page are determined by the task you are creating.
