The Schedule window has several configuration settings. Event Type is a drop-down box that allows event selection:

  • Disable Terminal Server - This will disconnect all the ThinManager Ready thin clients connected to the terminal server. The sessions will remain idle on the terminal server unless they are set to disconnect in the Terminal Services Configuration console.
  • Enable Terminal Server - This will allow a disabled terminal server to accept ThinManager Ready thin client connections again.
  • Reboot Terminal Server - This will cycle power on the terminal server and restart it.

The Repeat Interval radio buttons allow the event in the Event Type drop-down to be run Once Only, Weekly/Daily, Monthly, or Yearly.

  • Selecting Once Only will show a Select Date field for the event.
  • Selecting Weekly/Daily will show a Weekly Schedule list for the event to run. The Every Day button will select all the days in the list.
  • Selecting Monthly will show a Select Day of Month field for the event.
  • Selecting Yearly will show a Select Date field for the event.

The Time field allows the selection of the time that the event should occur.
Select the OK button to close the Schedule window.
Select Add to add another event to the Event Schedule or select OK to close the Event Schedule window and return to the terminal server configuration.
