    Weekly Scans PLEASE!!!!

    lbyoung

      We manage a large network and thus can not scan our entire network with one Discovery scan, thus we have 7 scans set up that we would like to run on a weekly basis (i.e. Scan 1 every Monday at 11PM, Scan 2 every Tuesday at 11pm...).  I have attempted to set the scan Frequency to 168 hours and opened several tickets to address this issue with no luck.  The best answer I have received is that a Feature Request will be put in.  The problem is that in the meantime, the scans run randomly and if several are occuring at once, Orion's web service becomes sluggish or unreachable.  This seems like a very common feature that is available in many other products.  I am currently running NPM 10.2.2.  This has been especially frustrating as I have to make sure the initial scan runs overnight so I either have to log in remotely to run the initial scan at 11PM every night or schedule it during the day to run at night and then modify it the following morning to change the frequency to 168 hours.

      If anyone has a workaround, I am up for suggestions. 

      Thanks
