Task Scheduler Options
Using the following options, you can change the Cron task limits. The following options allow you to set the maximum allowed number of tasks executing at the same time.
- Max Simultaneous Generic Tasks - The maximum allowed number of concurrent genetic Tasks (a task that is neither a policy nor a restore). Default value is "2."
- Max Simultaneous Disk Safe Tasks - The maximum allowed number of concurrent Tasks which refer to the Disk Safes: Policy, merge, and vacuum Tasks. Default value is "2."
- Max Simultaneous Restore Tasks - The maximum allowed number of concurrent Restore Tasks. They include file, bare metal, and database restores. Default value is "2."
These default values may differ depending on the free space available.
The following options are used for the Email Reporting Tasks. See Reporting.
- SMTP Host - SMTP hosts name used to deliver email reports.
- SMTP Default Return Address - The email address to which bounce messages will be sent. Some ISPs use the Return Address as a means of verifying that a user is allowed to send mail through their servers. If it is set incorrectly, your mail may be rejected. The return address is not normally visible in message headers, and it is NOT necessarily the same as the From: address or Reply-To: address in the message headers.
- SMTP Port (Enterprise Edition) - Defines the port of Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP).

SMTP setup is not available for Standard Edition running on a free license. To register a paid license, see Registering a Paid Standard Edition License.
