Run a maintenance schedule on demand

Maintenance schedules are typically run using the Planned Maintenance Nightly Run schedule job. However, there may be occasion when an admin wants to run the schedule immediately or change the date when a schedule runs.

About this task

When you run a maintenance schedule on demand, all of the next run dates for the relevant maintenance plan records are updated to the user-defined time, now or in the future. All the appropriate service orders are created. If the schedule is meter-, condition-, or script-based, service orders are created for maintenance plan records that meet the schedule’s criteria.

  2. Open the Maintenance Plan containing the schedule you want to run.
  3. In the Maintenance Schedules related list, select the maintenance schedule you want to run.
  4. Click the Run on demand related link.
  5. Fill in the fields on the form.
