I am running BSM 9.21 on Windows. Let me preface this by stating that the issues I'm having with downtime management, have been covered in previous messages:
1. Unable to edit a downtime once it goes active (cannot change CIs, schedules, actions, etc.)
2. Unable to delete an active downtime from the GUI (it has to be done from JMX console)
My interpretation from previous messages on this forum is that downtime management is WORKING AS INTENDED, but I don't understand WHY that is how it is supposed to work. Specifically, why can't I edit a downtime after it has entered an active state?
Asaf, thank you for the explanation. But given the nature of the beast, how can someone plan for a sweeping change, for example if a group of CIs needs to have their scheduled downtime modified? Is the best practice to change the recurrence end date on an existing downtime so that it ends sooner, and create a new downtime for the new schedule?
