  • Hi Shiva,

    This is not an authoring question.  You should post this in the General Section.

    That said, as long as you don't click "OK" you can keep on adding.  Or leave the filter empty and click on Search to see them all and then you can multi select to add.

  • Hi,

    Besides PChip's suggestion, if we want to put multiple servers into maintenace mode, we may consider using the following script

    $file=Read-Host "Please give file path consist of FQDN of servers to be in maintenance mode"
    $servers=Get-Content $file
    $MaintenanceTime=Read-Host "Number of minutes for maintenance"
    $Reason=Read-Host "Reason for Maintenance"
    foreach($server in $servers)
        $Instance = Get-SCOMClassInstance -Name $server
        $Time = ((Get-Date).AddMinutes($MaintenanceTime))
        Start-SCOMMaintenanceMode -Instance $Instance -EndTime $Time -Comment $Reason -Reason "PlannedOther"
        Write-Progress -Activity "Server: $server" -status "Completed" -percentComplete ($i / $servers.count*100)

    Hope the above information helps.
