Restarting a job during a time interval

You can set up a job to run multiple times on the scheduled run day during the specified time interval. You specify the interval at which the job repeats during the time window. For example, if there is a 12-hour time window for a job, you can set the job to run every two hours during that time window. The job runs at the interval you specify, respective to the start time of your time window. The interval must be greater than zero, and less than 23:59:59. In addition, the restart interval must be less than the amount of time set for the time window. For example, if you have a two-hour time window, you cannot specify a restart interval greater than 01:59:59.
