B.2 Day of the Week Specific

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 the Start date and End date fields to restrict the scheduled event to the dates between the start and end dates. Click the Calendar 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 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 the End Time as 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: Click Add to display the Specify Black-Out Time Period dialog box. Use the Start/End date and the Start/End time 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.
