Getting all 3 components of server monitoring in maintenance mode before performing a reboot
Clive Eastwood, from Microsoft, has released a very nice maintenance
mode tool for Opsmgr.
With this tool you can easily place individual servers into maintenance mode for
reboots. The problem now when you put a server in maintenance mode is that you have to ensure that you get all 3 components of server monitoring in
maintenance mode before performing your reboot. Otherwise you get tons
of false-positive alerts.
With AgentMM you can create desktop
shortcuts on your servers or you can create a scheduled task to
place a server into maintenance mode. The Agent, the HealthService and the HealthServiceWatcher are placed
into maintenance mode by AgentMM allowing the agent to be shut down
without alerts being generated.
the great tool Clive!!
