Schedule Docker Export command

Unread post by pcmauro » Thu Aug 09, 2018 4:59 pm


Creating a task like that works just fine:

"docker export Server-MSSQL-myfirmname | gzip > /volume1/Backup_ServerMSSQL/nightlybackup.tgz"

What I see is that the TGZ is way bigger than the TXZ file created by the Export function on the Docker GUI.

Do you guys know if it's possible to schedule the same export command triggered by the GUI button?
