SCOM Maintenance Mode Tool – SP1 Version

Hey Everyone.  I have finished the update to the tool to let it work with SP1 environments.  The problem had to do with the way that I can query SCOM for objects.  In R2 I can pull back only objects of the class I specify with the display name matches I specify.  With the SP1 binaries I have to pull back all objects of the queried class type then filter by matching.  So, what does this mean?  The tool will take a long time to query classes with high instance counts.  If someone with .Net experience wants to take a stab at making this more efficient let me know and ill send you the code.  With that in mind, the tool now does in fact work!  It is available HERE

    I am also working on a tool for 2007 R2 similar to what you have. If you provide me with your code I would be willing to share anything I develop.

    This sure looks like a great tool that MS should have developed. Are there any updates on this?
    It would be really cool if there were.
    Great job guys.

      Hey Don,

      Thanks for the comment. I have not had time to extend the code base lately as my job has changed focus from SCOM to Opalis. I do however still do bug fixes when they arise. The project has been changed to a codeplex project so anyone is more than welcome to request contribute rights so they can extend or fork.

      It could probabaly use a code cleanup and extending it to enable ‘scheduled’ maintenance mode is something that I have wanted to do for awhile. I have a ‘command line’ version of the tool which I will post up there as well.
