Pinned topic Fixlet download scheduling

‏2014-07-16T21:54:04Z |

Hi all, I'm new here and about to manage the updates for the PC side of our small domain. We have bandwidth limitations and enabling fixlets during production hours will impact performance and cause disruptions to workflow. Is it possible to enable a fixlet during my regular working day so that it will download after hours to prevent a workday disruption? I'd like to schedule them to download if possible after 7-8 PM and not during my regular workday hours.

Perhaps there is a way to limit the times when Bigfix can download files globally so when an action is created no files will download until allowed by a schedule, say 7 PM to 4 AM.

What can you tell me?

Thanks

    Hi Charlie,

    We are sorry for the late reply. You might want to schedule the execution of the Fixlet action using the Execution tab when taking action. Please refer to the link below:

      A little more detail ...

      When you schedule an action to run at a future date/time, the Agent won't request the required file until the scheduled time.  Additionally, the Main BES Server won't actually download the file until it is requested by an Agent.

      Be sure to NOT select the "Start client downloads before constraints are satisfied" option.  The Start Date/Time is one of the constraints.
