BE2012 - trying to start the job - for how long?

This issue has been solved. See solution.


This should be an easy one, hopefully :-) I simply can't find where to configure, for how log the BE2012 should wait before giving up on the job.

If there is an issue, hindering the backup to start at night, I may want the backup to try over again in the morning. As the conf. is now, the backup is canceled and re-scheduled for the next night.

I think the 'waiting period' was configurable in earlier versions.

Look under Scheduling options
