A Maintenance window can be added at the System (Global) Level, or at the Network Level.

To add a scheduled maintenance window,

  1. From the menu bar, select Tools -> System Administration.

  2. Next, select Networks -> Maintenance Window.

  3. Click Add.

    The Maintenance window uses the same schedule window as the Schedule Manager.

  • From the next drop down ( Window Duration), select the time allocated updates.
