PRTG Ad Sync / Downtimes



Hello guys

I am in the process of automating the PRTG alerting / maintenance window. We have created 23 groups as timeslots on our Active Directory for each day. These are called "Monday 00" for Monday 00:00; "Monday 02" for Monday 02:00.

Now: Is it possible to link these groups with a PRTG downtime? E.g. If the server "DC21" is member of the group "Monday 02", PRTG will automatically make a downtime for the next first Monday of the month from 02:00-04:00?

If "DC21" is then removed from the group "Monday 02" and added to the group "Tuesday 06", the downtime from Monday 02:00-04:00 should be automatically removed and a downtime for Tuesday 06:00 - 08:00 should be added.

I'm afraid something like this is not possible; at least not without writing custom scripts. Maybe this article might be of interest for you.
