Scheduled Task: Repository Snapshot Manager

I'm using Sense 2.1 and I would like to schedule a task to create a backup of my sense environment on a regular basis.

I ran it manually from the command line as specified in the help documentation https://help.qlik.com/sense/2.1/en-US/online/#../Subsystems/PlanningQlikSenseDeployments/Content/Ser...

The problem I have is when I run it manually it asks me to confirm the operation. Is there a parameter I can supply that will stop the prompt? When I ran it with a windows scheduled task it just went into a running disposition and did not do anything I presume it is waiting for an answer to the prompt.

Hi altogether,

As Vlad suggested please put /F /Q at the end of the command line. For me its working fine.

Kind Regards
