Select one or more dates on which to run the scheduled event and set other restrictions that might apply.
NOTE:If you schedule an event in the past, the scheduled event occurs when the assigned device refreshes.
Start Dates(s): Click the plus (+) symbol to display a calendar from which you can select dates to run the event on. Click the arrows next to the month to display the previous or next month’s calendar; click the arrows next to the year to display the previous or next year’s calendar.
Run Event Every Year: Select this option to run the event every year on the dates that you selected in thefield.
Select When Schedule Execution Should Start: Select one of the following options:
Start Immediately at Start Time: The scheduled event runs immediately at the time that you specify in thebox.
Start at a Random Time between Start Time and End Time: This option randomly spreads out the scheduled event times so the scheduled event does not run at the same time on multiple devices. You can use this option to avoid possible network overload. For example, if you want to distribute or install a bundle to 100 users, you could use theoption to specify a one-hour block of time (starting at the scheduled start time) in which to randomly deploy or install the bundle to the various devices.
StartTime\End Time: Use the down-arrows to select the start and end times of the scheduled event.
IMPORTANT:Be aware that ZENworks Linux Management uses theas the “expiration time.” If a bundle or policy is in the middle of being executed, execution stops at the specified time.
Use Greenwich Mean Time (GMT): Usually, a schedule is based on the device’s local time zone. If your network spans different time zones and you schedule an application to run at 13:00 (1:00 p.m.), it runs at 13:00 in each time zone. This option lets you specify a single time across the globe.
You can, for example, select this option to have bundles deployed or installed on devices at the same time regardless of their time zones.
