My compnay has just moved to Orion NPM partly based on my recommendation. I have found some cool stuff in there that were not in the application we were using previously. However, we need to suspend management for some of our nodes automatically and bring them back to the managed state between certain time ranges on a recurring basis (say weekends or 8pm Sundays to 8am Mondays) so as to get a more accurate report for our managed sites.
I have contacted the customer support and the reply is that it cannot be done. That will be a sad drawback for us and will mean manually setting unmanage and remanage (which can be forgotten!)
Please anybody has a work around for this?
Support is correct, this is not a native feature supported today in the product and is an open enhancement request, however, you might want to read this thread for a potential workaround, see Re: Version 9.1 - Scheduled, recurring blackout windows / maintenance windows
