# I've had more fails using dbconsole to schedule backups than I ever did with custom scripts in cron.  More dependencies on ...

We do not USE ... jobs or scheduling from within the database ...

So many potential problems hard to know where to start.

If you want a job that runs a backup of the database ... lets see ... run it from cron and it can check to see if the database is up and operating if not email/alert ... it can run the backup and check the output ( custom scripting required ) and email/alert the backup status ...

If you run it from the database side and the database is not up ... thats not going to work so well is it?
