Problem is that if you create a shared schedule with 'Monthly' repeat and set 'Last' Wednesday, then it saves with 'First', 'Third' instead of 'Last'.

Steps to duplicate issue:

  1. Open SMP Console -> Settings -> Notification Server -> Shared Schedules
  2. Click 'Add Schedule'
    • Set 'Monthly'
    • Set 'The Last' 'Wednesday'
    • Save changes
  3. Open Task Scheduler library on this NS and check what custom shared schedule has 'The Last' - 'Wednesday' -> see result -> it has 'First', 'Third' instead of 'Last'.

Known issue. Issues between scheduling v1 vs v2 API used in Shared Schedules.


This issue has been reported to the Symantec Development team. A fix has been added to ITMS 8.5 RU3 release.

As a workaround, please perform the steps below:

  1. On your SMP, open 'CoreSettings.config' file from "C:\ProgramData\Symantec\SMP\Settings\"
  2. Find there this setting name "ScheduleManagerInterop" and set it to "0"

    <!-- If greater than zero - we are going to use Scheduling V2 API -->
      <customSetting key="ScheduleManagerInterop" type="local" value="0" />

  3. Save changes and close CoreSettings.config file
  4. Now open "Task Scheduler Library" (Scheduled Tasks) and manually run "NS.Weekly.{ab7141ed-e03a-48e5-9051-a71b5912b7f2}" task to re-create all available schedules from the database in "Task Scheduler Library".
  5. Check whether your custom shared schedule has now correct 'start time', like 'Last' Wednesday.
