How to change time that history cleanup runs

We're on DS 14.2.11.

We've recently changed our repository server from MS SQL Server to MySQL. Every morning at 6 am, the job to clean up history from the repositories runs and puts exclusive locks on the history and stats tables. This is preventing our normally running jobs from running until it is done, which can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes or so.

Does any one know if there's a way to reschedule that history cleanup job? I'd really like to get it to run around 2 am or so, when we don't have jobs running.

    If the History clean up job is a scheduled batch job, it will need to be disabled and rescheduled to run at a different time through the Data Services Management Console Scheduling tab.
    If not, how was the clean up process configured? What is the retention period set to?
