Help with Preventing Scheduled Instances from Running in Crystal Server


I have been asked to find or create a best practice for preventing scheduled instances of reports from running.

We have approximately 450 reports currently scheduled in Crystal Server 2011.

We have had a couple of incidents recently, which prevented data being loaded to our primary reporting database, resulting in "bad" reports being run.

The good news is that the majority of our reports are scheduled to run between 6:00 and 8:15 am on business days.

Other than logging into the machine running Crystal Server and stopping the SIA, does anyone have any suggestions for a better way?

Yesterday this would have been trying to "pause" 244 report instances.

Is there a single "server" adaptave job server", or the "Core Services" server group that we can disable from the CMC that would prevent the reports from running?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
