Status: Closed (View Workflow)
Resolution: Cannot Reproduce
Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS, Jenkins 1.559, ThinBackup 1.7.4
Manual backup works fine, Cron driven backups just never happen. Don't see any msgs in the jenkins log.
- depends on
JENKINS-16714 Plugin dynamic load doesn't init PeriodicWork and AperiodicWork extensions
Looks related to
This still happened to me with Jenkins ver. 2.73.3, Windows Server 2012r2.
Created a cron expression: 0 22 * * 1-5
or: H 22 * * 1-5 (as jenkins suggests to use "H"), the scheduled backup never happened. It worked only when triggered manually.
After posting this comment, I updated Jenkins to ver. 2.89.2 (there were some security updates pending, and it was recommended to update Jenkins (LTS) from 2.73.2 to 2.89.2) and now the scheduled backup works according to the cron expression.
may be fixed by
JENKINS-28683 in in 2.129 or higher when it is available.
What's the workaround? Many Jenkins instances cannot just be restarted due to many long-running builds.
