No headers

Starting and stopping transactions on a schedule is done using the Unmanage Scheduling Utility.

You must be an Administrator to schedule transactions to be stopped. To do so, in your user account, scroll to the bottom under WPM Settings and change from User to Administrator in the drop-down menu.

Scheduling transactions to be stopped:

  1. To access the Unmanage Scheduling Utility, navigate to Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Advanced Features > Unmanage Scheduling Utility.
  2. Select either Create New Task, or open an existing task by clicking Edit Existing Task.
  3. Click Add Items.
  4. If required, group your transactions by selecting a filter from the Group by drop-down menu.
  5. Click on the Transactions tab.
  6. Select the transactions you want to schedule to be unmanaged by checking the check boxes next to the transaction names.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Select the length of time you would like the selected transactions to be stopped.
  9. Click OK.
  10. Optionally, you can click Save Task to save these selections for future use.


Once you have selected transactions to be stopped on a schedule, those transactions will appear in the left pane of the following screen.


To view the details of a selected transaction's schedule, check its box and its details will appear in the Task Item Properties pane on the right.

From this view, you can change the settings of transaction's schedule by selecting a transaction and clicking Set Duration. Additionally, you can delete transactions from the unmanage schedule by selecting them and clicking Delete Checked Items.

It is possible to create a conflict of schedules if you choose the same transaction to be stopped using both the web console and the Unmanage Scheduling Utility with different durations.
