requirements,
especially web servers that have a large number of web sites, virtual
directories

and associated configuration settings.

be used to fetch the Internet Information Server

settings for any number of se
rvers
across domains. The
Schedule Manager

can be used to manage (create/edit/delete
tasks and add/delete reports) scheduled tasks created in ARKIIS.



The
Schedule Manager

will create and store the settings as a task in the
Windows
Task Scheduler.



Using
Schedule Manager
, you can schedule the following reports

report, a HTML file will be generated. The HTML file will be stored in the specified
destination path
under a directory of the form
<Prefix>_<TaskName>_MM_DD_YYYY_HH_MM_SS.




In MDB file format
, the information will be stored as tables in databases. For each
report, a new database will be generated. The selected reports will be creat
ed as
separate tables. The database will be stored in the specified destination path
under a directory of the form <Prefix>_<TaskName>_MM_DD_YYYY_HH_MM_SS.




In CSV file format
