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.

Thanks for the great tool Clive!!
