How to add a scheduled deployment for Managed Windows servers.

To add a Scheduled Deployment:

  1. Select the My IPAM tab. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the Servers tab again to ensure you are working with the Configuration information page.
  3. Expand the Deployment Schedules section and click New. The Add Scheduled Deployment page opens.
  4. Under General, enter a descriptive name for the schedule in the Name field.
  5. Under Scheduled Time, set the time and frequency for the schedule:
    • Start Time—type the start time in these fields and select AM or PM.
    • Start Date—type a date in the format DD MMM YYYY or click the calendar button to select a date.
    • Frequency—to deploy just once at the specified time and date, select Once. To deploy at a regular interval, select Every, type a value in the text field, and select a time interval from the drop-down list.
      Note: When setting the frequency and time interval, consider the amount of time needed to complete the deployment. Do not select a time interval shorter than the time needed to complete a deployment.
  6. Under Servers, set the servers for the deployment:
    • Click Add server. The Select Server page opens.
    • Select the check boxes of the server(s) you wish to add and click Select. The selected server(s) appear in the Servers section.
    • Click Remove to remove a server from the list (optional)
  7. Under Services, select the check boxes for the services to be deployed: DNS and/or DHCP.
  8. Under Status, set the state of the deployment schedule:
    • Active—when selected, the schedule is active and deployment occurs at the specified time or frequency. When not selected, the schedule is not active and deployment does not occur.
  9. Under Change Control, add comments to describe your changes. By default, this step is optional but might be set as a requirement.
  10. Click Add.
    Note: For instructions on how to view the status of all active deployments, refer to Tracking deployment.
