Error Messages

Exception at <Node ID> GMT: Invalid delay time: < >

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create an agent to run at the scheduled time (12:00 EDT).
2. Observe that the agent does not run at the scheduled time.

Root Cause

In the case of an Agent scheduled to run "Daily" and at exactly midnight (12:00), the agent ends up being scheduled to run even a second prior to that, it would be the previous day in regards to the agent timezone that results in negative value in time calculation (Next Execution Time - Current Time)- it will interfere with the algorithm used to schedule the next run.


Perform the following local-change:

Set the value of the agent to run few minutes after midnight, five minutes past 12:00 say 12:05 midnight.
