Client node schedules created in ISC have duration 'Indefinite'


Active Newcomer
Running TSM server and ISC 6.2.1. Today I created one-time schedule for some client nodes. Some time after the schedule start time I checked the scheduler status on clients and noticed that the schedule was due to start several hours after my defined start time. Investigation led me to 'query schedule' command, from which I can see that duration for this schedule is set to 'Indefinite', which probably means that the clients will perform the scheduled operation sometime between now and the end of the universe :) Clearly not what I want.

When creating a client node schedule in ISC, I see no place where I could specify the duration. According to docs, the default duration is 1 hour.

My normal everyday schedules that I created when I first set up TSM all have duration of 1 hour. Probably sometime between then and now I have done something to change the default, but I can find nothing in the docs about how to set the default duration for new schedules. Does anyone know?
