Backing up all of the View components at the same time might seem like an obvious thing to do but it can be harder than you think. Failing to get close to the same backup window for the View Composer DB(SQL) as the ADAM database can leave you in a bit of a mess. Records may not matching up on a restore will have you deleting virtual machines or records from other parts of the ADAM database to fix inconsistencies.
Inside of the View Administrator console there isn’t a set time that you can select from. The Time starts at Midnight and you can only adjust the frequency, hourly, weekly and so on. You can just adjust it to the hourly setting and that should get you close to what your DBA’s are doing.
I don’t like running backups all day if there isn’t a reason . To get an exact start time you have to head off into the ADAM database. Please read this post for help backing up and connecting to the ADAM database before making any changes.
In the ADAM database Expand OU=Properties, select OU=Server, select CN=
