Patch Download Job - Schedules tab
The Schedules panel lets you schedule a job to execute immediately, schedule a job at a specific time in the future, schedule a job on a recurring basis, and define notifications that are issued when a job runs.
- Scheduling a job that executes immediately — To schedule a job that executes immediately, select Execute job now.
Scheduling a job — The Schedule tab lets you schedule a job so it can run one time, recur hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly, or recur at some arbitrary interval.
While scheduling, you can set the time zone for the job. You can also set an execution priority level for the job.
For a recurring schedule, BMC Server Automation automatically accounts for differences in time zones and changes in daylight savings time. For example, if you schedule a job that should run weekly at 06:00 Eastern Standard Time, the job always runs at 06:00 Eastern Time, no matter whether standard or daylight savings time is in effect.
Ensure that all component machines in your BMC Server Automation system have their clocks synchronized.
- Defining job notifications — The Job Notifications tab lets you set up notifications that are generated when a scheduled job runs.
