Start Maintenance Mode

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Orchestrator, System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator, System Center 2012 SP1 - Orchestrator

The Start Maintenance Mode activity puts a monitor in Operations Manager into maintenance mode. All alerts generated by computers watched by the monitor while in maintenance mode will be ignored. You can use the Start Maintenance Mode activity at the start of maintenance procedures to prevent false alerts from being generated.

If you choose to put a computer (Microsoft.Windows.Computer or Microsoft.Unix.Computer) into maintenance mode, then all child monitors for that computer will also be put in maintenance mode.

The activity publishes all of the data from the required and optional properties into published data. The following tables list the required and optional properties and published data for this activity.
