Setting restart time constraints

You can select Restart service when password is rotated if changing the account password for a service requires restarting the service.

If you select the Restart option, you can also select the Enforce restart time restrictions option to specify time constraints that will control when the service is restarted. For example, you might want to only allow a service to be restarted on Saturday or Sunday between 2:00AM and 3:00AM based on your local time zone.

For example:

If a service is running under its account when it is time to rotate the password, password rotation is skipped on the system until the service session ends.

If you restrict when a service can be restarted, the same restrictions apply when you attempt to start automated password management on demand by selecting the Push Password Management action. For more information about starting password management on demand, see Pushing service changes.
