Bad Friday!

Word to the wise! Whenever defining an immediate action schedule be VERY careful not to do what I accidentally did....

DEFINE CLIENTACT

That's all I typed when I accidentally hit return and it issued an immediate action schedule for EVERY client in EVERY domain! Now I think I was aware of this, but I must have forgotten as I repeatedly yelled "CRAP!" as I saw the define results scroll across the screen. Good thing I have a handy shell script to manage things like deleting those schedules when they were created. Still a number of them kicked off even when I thought I had gotten them all.

    Exactly the same thing happened to me one yearago. Unfortunately I was not aware of what canhappen so I had no script for fast schedule deletion. This command is really dangerous and ITSM developers should consider changing it's syntax. Simply requiring domain and node name would make it harmless.
