10.5 Unscheduling Policies

To unschedule a policy, disassociate the policy from the schedule. Other options are available depending on your intended outcome.

When you disassociate a policy and schedule from each other, the policy does not run again until you associate a schedule with it, or unless you run it manually.

Disassociating a schedule from a policy does not stop an in-progress policy run. To stop an in-progress policy run, see Section 9.10, Stopping an In-Progress Policy Run.

10.5.1 Removing a Schedule from Multiple Policies

You can disassociate one or more policies from a schedule by using the Schedule Properties dialog box.

  1. In the Management Console, connect to the DynamicFS server that you want to manage.

  2. Click the Schedules folder under the server to view the list of schedules for the server in the right panel.

  3. Right-click a schedule and select Properties to open its Schedule Properties dialog box, then select the Policies tab.

  4. Disassociate the policies from the schedule by selecting the policies, then clicking Remove.

  5. Click Apply or OK to save and apply your changes.

    The policies are now unscheduled. You can run them manually by using the Execute now option.

10.5.2 Removing a Schedule from a Single Policy

You disable a policy’s schedule for all of its associated pairs by disassociating the policy schedule from the policy.

  1. In the Management Console, connect to the DynamicFS server that you want to manage.

  2. Right-click the policy you want modify, then select Schedule.

  3. Select the associated policy schedule, then click Remove.

  4. Click OK to save your changes.

    The policy does not run automatically. You can use Execute Now option to run the policy as needed. For information, see Section 9.8, Starting a Policy Run.

10.5.3 Disabling the Schedule for Selected Pairs

To disable the policy’s schedule from running on some pairs, you can disassociate the pair from the policy. Re-associate the pair and policy when you are ready for the policy to run on the pair again. For information, see Section 9.6.3, Associating or Disassociating Pairs with a Policy.
