You must have Read or Modify permission for the site security object class or instance to perform this procedure.

To schedule a site maintenance task

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site name> / Site Settings / Site Maintenance / Tasks.

  2. In the results pane, right-click the task that you want to schedule and click Properties.

  3. In the task properties dialog box, enable and configure the task. To minimize interference with the site operation, set the time period to off-peak hours of the site. The time period is the time interval in which the task can run. It is defined by the Start after and Latest start time specified in the task properties dialog box.

  4. Click OK to save your settings. The task will now run according to its schedule.

    If a task fails to run on the first attempt, the SMS_SQL_Monitor service attempts to rerun the task until either the task runs successfully or until the time period in which the task can run has passed.
