That is unfortunately a quirk in timing the scheduler cannot overcome in it's current form and we do not offer a method to change the timing outside of the Protect GUI through scripting or other method.
This may be a good candidate for a feature request though. You can submite the request from Protect by going to Help and choosing Submit feature a request.
Thanks for the response Charles
Just an update on this. I did find a way to make the change in the shavlik database without using the GUI
however I need to simulate the "save and update agents" button function.
Is this something that a command line tool can do for us?
