IDM Scheduling rules to run on 25th of every month

Hi All,

I need help on scheduling a job to run at 31th of every month. I am using Specific time, and trying to enter value as 580:00:00 , which calculates to 4 am on 25th of every month.

But the rule is not getting saved with this value. Instead it is taking value as 05:80:00

Could you suggest on this

IDM 7.2
Regards

Plaban

    I think it will help you out.

    Hello Plaban,

    "specific time" means exactly that: a time (hours:minutes:seconds). That's why you can't save 580:00:00, because there is no 580th hour. ;)

    Monthly scheduling rules are not really possible in 7.2. At least I never found a way do get them right.

    .

    Regards,

    Steffi.

    Hi Plaban

    What you can do is to setup a daily task. In this daily task you can check the day of the month. if it is 25th, then continue otherwise, skip.

    This is how I did it for similar requests.

    Cheers

    Hi Plaban,

    need to enter schedule rules manually in the tables.

    mc_Sched_rule table

    Ruleno - This value in this column should automatically generated, if not create a new entry.

    Name - the text entered here will be visible during the schedule rule selection in the job.

    Ruletype - Rule type value should be 10 if the schedule rule is created to run at a certain frequency

    Description - enter the description of the schedule rule

    Weekdays - give a blank as the schedule rule i not created to run daily

    DayOfMonth - 25

    RuleFlag - 11

    mc_sched_item

    Ruleno - This value in this column should automatically generated, if not create a new entry. the rule no in the mc_Sched_rule and mc_sched_item should be matched

    Frequency- leave it as blank

    scheditem - calculate the time in seconds at what time the job needs to run.

    in your case it is to run at 04:00, so 4*60*60 - 14400 seconds

    insert into mc_sched_rule values (<enter the next rule number without brackets>,'Name of Schedule Rule - Monthly - 25th',10,'Run at 04:00 the 25th of every month','','25','11');

    insert into mc_sched_item values (<enter rule number of the newly created rule in mc_sched_rule with out brackets>,'','14400);

    Regards,

    Deva
