Specifies a time when the database will come down automatically.

Parameter type: optional, dynamic

The format of the DownTime parameter is dd:hh:mm where:

  • dd is the number of days from today. (For example, 00 is today, and 01 is tomorrow.)
  • hhmm is the time of day in 24-hour format.

For example, DownTime = 01:03:30 specifies that you want to bring the database down on the following day at 3:30 in the morning.

The DownTime parameter is not available when you run the Planning Analytics database as a Windows service.

When you use the DownTime parameter on a Planning Analytics database on UNIX, you must set the RunningInBackground parameter to T. If RunningInBackground=F, the database prompts for confirmation before shutting down and cannot shut down without manual confirmation from an administrator.
