I have about 30 servers I'll be adding to a Deploy Task, and they will need a reboot afterward. However, I'd like to randomly stagger these installs/reboots about 5 minutes apart, in order to reduce stress on the physical boxes.
What's a good way to accomplish this? I don't see any good default options in the schedule options.
An idea I have: In my deploy task, set Step 1 to be a script with a randomized counter on it. (Like PAUSE for 1 - 20 minutes, then RETURN code 0). PDQ will then advance to the next Step. Not the most eloquent solution though.
Any ideas of tips? Thanks!
