Starting with Solution Manager 7.1 SP00 it is possible that script executions react on downtimes scheduled for managed systems in Technical Administration workcenter.
Workmodes of managed systems
Starting with Solution Manager 7.1 SP05 it is possible to schedule workmodes for EEM robots in the Technical Administration workcenter.
For each robot workmodes can be scheduled which has an impact if a script should be executed or not. Each robot could have for example Non Business Hours depending on where he is located.
Example: Robot located in EMEA should execute scripts only in business hours from 7 a.m. to 7.p.m. and robot located in APJ should execute scripts only in business hours from 7 a.m. to 7 a.m. in different timezones. Just tell the script that it should not run in non-business hours and schedule the work modes for robot EMEA and robot APJ in their timezone.
In contrast to the work modes for robots which belong to the SAP Solution Manager and the EEM infrastructure the work modes for managed systems like ERP or Portal can have work modes like Planned Downtime or Maintenance that are independent of the robots and the Solution Manager. In the picture above the workmode of the managed system is displayed with black shape and the work mode of the robots are displayed red shape.
Required role to access work mode management:
Scheduling short-term work modes
The job EEM_DOWNTIME_DAEMON is scanning the next 30 minutes if a downtime is scheduled of any managed system used by any script. If you need to schedule a short-term work mode that starts within the next 30 minutes you can execute report AI_EEM_DOWNTIME_DAEMON after you entered your work mode. Execution can be done either in dialog (then you need to confirm several information messages) or in background.
