Hi everyone,

First of all, thanks to the team for the new release, you are doing an amazing job. Proxmox is getting better ands better and PVE + PBS are great tools together, I love them.

Regarding backup schedule I can't figure out what I am doing wrong:

mon..fri */2:00 -> is ok
mon..fri 7..18:00/15 -> is ok

why is the following not working ?:
mon..fri 7..18:00 */2:00

I get:
Parameter verification failed. (400)
schedule[/B]: invalid format - invalid calendar event 'mon..fri 7..18:00 */2:00' - unable to parse calendar event - unused parts

you can only give one 'time' part per schedule so having 7..18:00 */2:00 ist no going to work
what schedule do you want to achieve?

for that you have to give the times manually:

'mon..fri 7,9,11,13,15,17:00'
