We have a few labs that consist of netbooks (who are on the slow side); Therefore we would like to avoid running additional tasks on them during the day.
The goal is to have the machines wake up at night to perform maintenance tasks and then shutdown.
These tasks would include Inventory Scan, Policy.sync, Vulscan and other tasks that normally run during the day.
Is the best practice to have these scheduled and run by the core or should I use the local scheduler? (looking for a the most liable method)
Personally I’m leaning towards the local scheduler (Just seems a little easier to troubleshoot)
If run using the scheduler I would be tempted to put these in a batch file but I’m not sure how to determine when some of the tasks such as the Policy.sync have completed.
I thought I had seen information about this here before but I can’t seem to find it. =o(
If somebody could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
