Scheduled Scans Run as Consoles Local Time

Version 6

    Symptoms


    The Protect Console is located in one time zone, Target Machines are located in a different time zone, and scheduled scans are not running at the Target Machine's local time.

     

    Cause

     

    Scheduled scans are stored on the Protect Console machine. Because of this, the scheduled events occur relative to the Protect Console's local time.


    Resolution


    To cause a scheduled Scan to run from the Protect Console machine at specific time on a Target Machine in a different time zone, schedule the task relative to the Target Machine's time.

     

    Example: Console is located in Mountain Standard Time, Target is located in Eastern Standard Time. To schedule a scan on the Target at 10:00 PM EST, schedule the scan on the console at 8:00 PM MST.
