Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

What is a scheduled task?
Scheduled Maintenance supports different types of scheduling. Select the one that best suits the task. Scheduled tasks run according to a defined schedule with no dependencies. For example, you can schedule a task to run every Tuesday at 4:00 a.m., or on the first Monday in January. Demand-based tasks run when the task relies on changes in the Configuration Management application. This can be defined by a trigger. For example, you can schedule a task to run whenever:
- The available drive space on the file server drops below 10 GB.
- The printer prints 8,000 pages.
- The available disk space on a server drops below 2 GB, require a log dump
- The number of devices attached to a particular router approaches the number of ports it has available.
