Two Delta-Backups on the same host
I would like to have two chains of delta backup running on the same host. One Daily with 7 Days Retention and another one called Monthly, running on the first day of the month, with 6 Month retention. Is this even possible? I have created two backup jobs, one called Monthly and another Daily. Here are the Details:
Now we come to the part interesting part. Triggering the backup causes them to "Skip". Also, a crontab schedule is not displayed. I have attached the log and hope that it is of help.

- Create one backup job and use multiple schedule. This will allow using the same base and be more efficient
- The skipped message can be clicked: you'll have a pop with a link toward our doc explaining the reason why.
Thanks. This worked for the first time.(I ran them manually as test). Afterwards it switched to skipped and wants to protect the VDI chain again. Can you explain that error message to me?

Btw: It would be great if there were an easy way to deselect all days of the month except the first. This can't be such an uncommon backup schedule and it is really annoying to have to deselect every day manually
Thanks for the quick reply and yours sincerely
When you click on the link of the error message it should send you to the official documentation, explaining what it means: https://xen-orchestra.com/docs/backup_troubleshooting.html#error-messages
I'm not sure to understand the UI question, can you post a screenshot?
