I need to schedule the snapshots of some of my EBs volumes, but the offered options don't include what I need.

I need to run the task on mon, tue, wed, thu and fri at, for example, 23.00

How can I schedule this task?

regards

    You can use cron option to do that. The tasks all run in US eastern time currently. So for your use case, try something like this:

    0 23 * * mon-fri

    test the app?

    I'd loke to know if I can give a name to each snapshot i generate.

    Do you mean a tag for the created snapshot?

    We automatically do this. If the source volume has a name tag that is propagated to the created snapshot. We also tag the created snapshot with a tag called 'source' which has the original volume id the snapshot was created from.

    The problem continues: I tag 5 files and the snapshot task takes only four.
