Select one or more days of the week to run the scheduled event on and set other restrictions that might apply.
The Day of the Week Specific schedule applies to policies only; you cannot configure a bundle with the Day of the Week Specific schedule.
Select the Days of the Week to Run the Scheduled Event: Select one or more days, Sunday to Saturday, on which you want to run the scheduled event. By default, no days are selected; a day is selected when the check box is checked.
Restrict Schedule Execution to the Following Date Range: Use theand fields to restrict the scheduled event to the dates between the start and end dates. Click the icon to display a calendar from which you can select the respective dates.
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 all 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.
Start Immediately at Start Time, and then Repeat until End Time Every: Use theand fields to specify how often you want the scheduled event repeated until deployment or installment of the bundle is successful.
Start Time\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 will stop 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 1:00 p.m., it runs at 1:00 p.m. 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.
Set the “Black Out” Time Ranges when Execution Should Not Occur: Clickto display the Specify Black-Out Time Period dialog box. Use the and the options to specify the time period in which you do not want the scheduled event run. You can use this option to minimize network traffic during a certain time period.
