Request for option to finish server task after specific hour

Request for the option to finish server task after a specific hour

Looking for an option to cancel/stop the server task if it has run for more than x hours/minutes?

Similar to the client task assignment we have now.

Re: Request for option to finish server task after specific hour

The option to automatically stop a Server task doesn't exist at this point, but what are you trying to achieve or what needs to be stopped?

If any server task runs for more than 4 hours then it should automatically be stopped instead of Terminate it or restarting the ePO services to stop that

Re: Request for option to finish server task after specific hour

Why should it be stopped?  Some tasks, depending on what it is doing, may take time to complete - especially purges, replication, etc.  If many server tasks are taking a very long time, that warrants a service request to find out what is happening.  There could be deadlocks, high database fragmentation, network bottlenecks, or other reasons.  Stopping server tasks mid stream might have negative consequences.
