How To: Use Scheduling parameters for Compare
The Scheduling action controls when compare jobs will be executed by hvrscheduler. The /CompareStartTimes parameter instructs that the compare is run at a certain time defined by user. By default, these jobs must be triggered manually using command hvrrefresh.
