  • 1.  How do I do a maintenance windows?

    Posted Sep 25, 2018 11:32 AM

    Hello community, I'm having some issues trying to do a maintenance windows, in simple words I need on a specific hour I need the machine begins to install a software update (Patch Manager) and the same machine restart on a deadline hour or day or both together, there is someway to do something like that?


    For example:


       I configure a distribution to several machines and the machines have to begin to download the patch immediately, but the installation have to begin at 18:00 and in case the update needs restart the machine this have to do it at 23:00.


    Can I configure CA Patch Manager to make something like that? Maybe do some workflow on Patch Manager?


    PLZ help me.


    Forward thanks to everyone!

    do you have ITCA too or only Patch manager ?

    With ITCA this is easy. Configure WOL. Create Policy and set evaluation to 18:00 :



    Or set "restart machine after last job.
