Create a Maintenance Window for a Manual Installation
If you do not want to install AV Defender immediately, you can create a maintenance window to deploy it to the selected devices at a specific time.
- In the navigation pane, click Views > All Devices.
- Select the devices and click Add Task > Maintenance > Add New Maintenance Window > Scheduled Maintenance.
- To create a maintenance window for a rule, in the navigation pane, click Configuration > Monitoring > Rules and select the rule.
- Click the Maintenance Windows tab, and click Add > Scheduled Maintenance.
This places the selected devices in a downtime state during the reboot and specify the time before the device is brought out of downtime. MSP N-central will take the device out of downtime if the agent has not reported back for three hours after the re-start began. This will not happen if the device is already in a scheduled downtime period.
