The Dataset creation policy and Replication policies sections explain that policies may be configured with recurrence. A replication policy requires a dataset to be created before starting. If recurrence is scheduled for the policies, ensure the recurrence schedule for the dataset creation and replication policy do not conflict. Allow adequate time for the dataset creation to complete before the replication policy starts, ensuring the dataset is available when the replication policy starts. As explained in the Parent-child policies section, an alternative to the recurrence option is to create parent-child relationships for the policies.
