Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Background applications can be configured to start automatically when a controller is powered on, or when the controller assumes the role of master/file server. Is it possible to schedule activation based on different criteria? Eg running a background task daily at a specified hour.

This company sells a solution to schedule and replay tasks:
