Schedule Shutdowns of Managed Connect Direct Servers
It would be nice if there were a way to schedule the shutdown of some of our managed Connect Direct servers. For us, it would be for Windows and UNIX (AIX and Linux). Connect Direct z/OS is managed by a different team here.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
Be able to schedule the shutdown of Connect Direct from Control Center, would give us greater flexibility and control. We receive notifications as to when patching is being done and we can then schedule that activity in Control Center before the actual implementation date.
