Cron schedule for Power Management doesn't allow for Sunday in day-of-week
- FOG Version: 1.4.0
- OS: Ubuntu 14.04.5
- Service Version: 0.11.12
- OS: Windows 10 1607, Windows 7
I am trying to schedule a shutdown of computers on Saturday and Sunday. The FOG web administration for the power management service only allows values 0-6 in the day of the week field when setting a cron schedule. When setting the value as 0 (assuming Sunday), version 0.11.12 of the client reports the following error in the fog.log:
19/05/2017 10:06 AM PowerManagement ERROR: Day-of-Week values must be between 1 and 7
Now obviously I cannot set 7 in the web administration as it will not allow me to update or add a schedule. Therefore, I cannot currently shutdown computers on a Sunday. From my previous experience with cron, FOG web and the client should be able to support both values of 0 and 7 for Sunday.

I’ve updated the code.
Please install the working branch and you should have the ability to use 0 and 7 for sundays.
It will proper send 7 as the “sunday” if 0 was set originally too.
0 = sunday in the system.
It sets 0 as 7 automatically.
So while it is “similar” to cron, it’s not exact. My limiters are 0-6 for DOW field.
