Introducing my SCOM Maintenance Mode Tool: Available Here
- Detection of all Root Management Servers
- Instant Maintenance Mode
- Remote Maintenance Mode
- Start Maintenance Mode
- Stop Maintenance Mode
- Maintenance Mode Check
- This program was designed to be simple. In our environment it lives on a network share and we have a link on the desktop of each server pointing to it. The program defaults to running against the current computer. This program makes a call to the SCOM SDK to put the computers Windows Computer class and all subclasses into maintenance mode. This allows for ‘instant’ maintenance mode, once the program pops up and says that the computer is in maintenance mode, it is.
This tool requires the Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.dll which is available on any computer that has the SCOM agent installed on it. The install location is usually
C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\SDK Binaries
You then can put my executable and this DLL on a network share and run it from any of your computers.
