Guidelines for Entering Time Values for Service Schedules
When you enter time schedules, you can use the values in the following list. See Setting the Time Schedule (SRC CLI) for a description of the options.
Dates in the to statements apply only to services that have an authorization plug-in configured. If an authorization plug-in is not configured for the service associated with the schedule, the entries in the to statements are ignored.
*—Asterisks are interpreted as follows:
Minutes and hours:
0 if used in the from or to statements of a scheduled event
First or last if used in the statements of a schedule exclusion
Time zones—Local SAE time zone
All other options—First through last
For options in the to statements, * for the end time is equivalent to “deny service activation after this start date.”
For dates in the from statements, * is equivalent to “deny service activation before this end date.”
Range of numbers separated by a hyphen. The range is inclusive; for example, 1-5 for the hour specifies hours 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
List of numbers or ranges separated by commas. For example, 1,2,5,9 or 0-4,8-12.
Skip values in ranges:
To skip a number’s value through the range, follow a range with /<number>. For example, 0-23/2 used in the hour option specifies that the event occurs every other hour.
Skip values with *. If you want to specify every two hours, use */2.
In general, if you set both a day-of-month and a day-of-week, then the service scheduler uses the day-of-month configuration. However, using the weekly recurrence feature, if you set both a day-of-month and a day-of-week, then the service scheduler uses the day-of-week configuration.
When the day-of-week is configured and the weekly-recur-freq is set to a value greater than 1, then the service scheduler performs the scheduled service changes based on the weekly-recur-freq configuration, whereas if the weekly-recur-freq is set to 0 or 1, then the service scheduler performs the scheduled service changes based on the day-of-week configuration.
