configuring an outage window for the master?

Hello,

Is there anyway to scheduled an outage window for the master?  I know I can schedule and agent to be down during a specific time under the "outages" tabe.

Thanks

configuring an outage window for the master?

I can think of a couple of ways

low tech one master scenario

You could use the API to set  the system queue to ZERO then switch it back, that coudl be scheduled with task scheduler (windows)

Better

if you have multiple masters you could have one manage the other's outage window (lets say on patch weekend)

install the client with API on agents and create DB aliases to the other master. We are heavy users of group variables.

I created a simple generic batch file then pass it

CD d:\tidal\scheduler\client\
set alias=%1
d:\tidal\scheduler\client\sacmd.exe qlimit -n %2 -l %3

for the Tidal job

JOB NAME System Queue

CMD

I call theh batch file (on a network location)

PARAMS

pass the parameters:

""

jobname = System Queue

master = your alias

limit = 0 or to set back to a value lets say 100

I can control environments this way in a flexible manner

I also can stop/start or check the status of the service with POWERSHELL

job Name TidalSAMaster

CMD POWERSHELL <--we install powershell 2.0 on all windows agents

PARAMS

\\\Stop_Remote_Services.ps1  -servername -service -Servicestartmode Manual

I create a generic script to stop and set the mode to manual but you coudl just do with CMD line

(we wanted to hold off on starting the service post pathing reboot)

sample Check the services

Get-Service -ComputerName -Name

scan output for "stopped"
