  • In this case you would have to specifically look for the classes that are being put in MM.  Putting the exchange class (from the exchange view) into MM is not going to shut off all monitoring on that computer.  Learn to NOT set things in MM from anything other than a computer view and then the solution above will be fine.

  • Or in stead of selecting windows server in the example dktoa gives you, just select Computer. But it has the same effect, you dont see every little thing there, just the computers. The view also doesnt let you select something abstract like Entity to show in this view. But in general you would put the whole computer in MM. only when specifically needed would I put lower levels in MM, like a website that will go into maintenance.

  • Thanks for your answer but that's not exactly what i'm looking for. I would like to see everything that's in MM. Problem is when a server is put in MM in a state view from (for example) exchange's Server State. I wil not see the servers in the state view that I created with your answer.

    And I also need to see the services that are in MM.

  • Try this:

    Create a new State View. In entity select Agent. Check the Maintenance Mode tick box. This will show all systems in Maintenance Mode regardless of MP.
