To create a schedule which spans more than one day, for example from 10pm to 5am:

  • Create a schedule, go to Objects > Schedules.

  • Add the schedule to a policy, go to Policies tab.  Click on the Options link for a security policy.

  • To display the schedule setting, run command: 
    admin@myNGFW# show schedule    (add 'shared|vsys1|vsys2|...' for multiVSYS)
    schedule {
      multiday {
        schedule-type {
          recurring {
            daily [ 22:00-23:59 00:00-05:00];



If time spanning multiple days is put in a single schedule (eg. start 22:00 end 05:00) an error message will appear:
