Hi all,

I would like to place a group of servers in Maintenance mode on multiple dates that follow no specific / defined order (such as the 1st Monday of every week).

how can I go about implementing the same? do I have to create multiple schedules or is there some kind of workaround?

for reference the dates I would like to place the group in maintenance are:

  1. Good Friday: Sadly, every year a different date (but always the last Friday before Easer)
    i. 2023: 7 April
    ii. 2024: 29 March
    iii. 2025: 18 April
    iv. 2026: 3 April
    v. 2027: 26 March
    vi. 2028: 14 April
    vii. 2029: 30 March
    viii. 2030: 19 April
  2. Easter: Sadly, every year different dates (but always on a Sunday and Monday). Below focusing only on the Mondays as these servers are already (to be) scheduled for Maintenance Mode every weekend (sat sun).
    i. 2023: 10 April
    ii. 2024: 1 April
    iii. 2025: 21 April
    iv. 2026: 6 April
    v. 2027: 29 March
    vi. 2028: 17 April
    vii. 2029: 2 April
    viii. 2030: 22 April
  3. Ascension Day: Sadly, every year different dates (but always on a Thursday).
    i. 2023: 18 May
    ii. 2024: 9 May
    iii. 2025: 29 May
    iv. 2026: 14 May
    v. 2027: 6 May
    vi. 2028: 25 May
    vii. 2029: 10 May
    viii. 2030: 30 May
  4. Whit Monday: Sadly, every year different dates (but always on a Monday).
    i. 2023: 29 May
    ii. 2024: 20 May
    iii. 2025: 9 June
    iv. 2026: 25 May
    v. 2027: 17 May
    vi. 2028: 5 June
    vii. 2029: 21 May
    viii. 2030: 10 June

Your assistance is greatly appreciated :).
