How to Create a One-Time Maintenance Window

A one-time maintenance window is a scheduled maintenance window that only executes once and then is removed from the schedule. This is useful for planned outages that are not part of regularly scheduled maintenance.

To create a one-time, single use maintenance window:

  1. Navigate to the Active Maintenance Windows page (Utilities → Maintenance Windows).
  2. On the Active Maintenance Windows page, click the Maintenance Window Administration button to open the Maintenance Window Schedules page.
  3. On the Maintenance Window Schedules page (see image at right) click the Create One-Time Maintenance Window button to open the Create One-Time Maintenance Window page.
  4. On the Create One-Time Maintenance Window page:

    1. Use the TYPE field drop-down selector, select the type of object(s) you would like to put in the maintenance window (a device or group of devices; or a service, WebART or email check).
      • If you selected “device” then also select a device group to filter your options for the next field.
      • If you selected “service” then also select a device group and specific device to filter your options for the next field.
    2. Using the SPECIFICALLY field drop-down selector, select the specific sub-group from the above type.
    3. In the two fields provided next to START: Click in the first field to select a start date, then click in the second field to select a start time.
      • This is when your maintenance window will begin.
    4. In the two fields provided next to END: Click in the first field to select an end date, then click in the second field to select an end time.
      • This is when your maintenance window will end.
    5. In the NAME field, enter a descriptive name for this maintenance window.
      • This name will be displayed on the Maintenance Window Schedules page, and the Active Maintenance Windows page when the window is in progress.
    6. Click the Create button to save the maintenance window.

Your one-time maintenance window is now added to the schedule. It will execute once at the configured time and then be removed from the schedule.
