To use the schedule wizard to configure connections for Windows Mobile devices

Dec 21, 2015
  1. On the Policies tab, click Registry Configurations, and then on the Wizard menu, click Scheduling.
  2. In Scheduling configuration parameters, select the following options:
    • Do not define connection policy. The device will not reconnect unless the user clicks Connection in Device Manager.
    • Keep connection permanently live. If the connection is permanent, Device Manager on the mobile device will attempt to reconnect automatically to the server running Device Manager after a network connection loss and will monitor the connection by transmitting control packets at regular intervals (This configuration is not recommended because it consumes more battery charge and generates more network traffic.)
    • Define a permanent and/or occasional connection schedule within a given time range. Keep the connection live during the following time range:
      • Define a period in which the device will stay connected to the server. Device Manager on the device will attempt to reconnect to the server running Device Manager after a network connection loss and will monitor the connection by transmitting control packets at regular intervals.
      • Force one connection during the time range below. The connection will automatically shut down once updates have taken effect. This option forces a scheduled, one-time connection to the server, in particular to check for availability of new deployments. To avoid a connection peak at the beginning of the selected range, the relevant devices will connect randomly during the defined range. Device Manager on the device will only reconnect after a network connection loss if an operation was in progress. The server running Device Manager will likewise terminate the connection after an inactive period.
        Note: Both of the preceding options include an option to see the schedule to the local device clock or to UTC time.
