A few days ago we explained in our blog how to setup the new system access through calendars, which has been incorporated to UDS Enterprise 2.0. This new functionality, appart from enabling or restricting user access to services, virtual desktops and applications by dates and slots, allows administrators to schedule and automate certain tasks on a Service Pool.
This new feature facilitates important and regular actions like:
-Setting initial services: it allows to re-adjust virtual desktops initially created by the system, which are configured and ready to be assigned to a user.
-Creating new publications: it enables scheduling the creation of new service publications.
-Adjusting the size of the cache: it enables to re-adjust virtual desktops that we want always available in the system cache. These desktops are also configured and ready to be assigned to a user.
-Adjusting the L2 cache size: it allows to re-adjust the virtual desktops we want to be always available in the L2 cache system. These desktops are configured and put in suspension mode.
-Changing the maximum number of services: it enables to modify the maximum number of virtual desktops in the service pool created by the system.
In order to schedule any of these tasks, the first step is configuring one or several calendars and their rules. Once finished, we select a service pool and go to the tab "Scheduled actions" and click on "New". We only have to choose the calendar we want to use, the time during which the action will be executed and select the action to perform. Once we fishish these steps, we have a scheduled task that can perform real actions on a service pool.
