SCOM 2016/2019 Maintenance Schedules stop manually configured maintenance RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I have noticed that when you schedule a maintenance window for some instances, when the maintenance windows ends, it ends maintenance for instances that had already been set manually. This behavior is pretty sad to say the least.

    Is there some soltuion or workaround for this?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Chris,

    Could your scenario more in detail, and which objects you put into maintenance mode both manually and with maintenance schedules?

    I did a quick test in my lab environment running on SCOM 2019 and I did not encounter this behavior.

    Test scenario:

    I put a specific object into maintenance mode on ServerX.

    I then have a maintenance schedule created for a few other specific objects on ServerX to run automatically on specific days.

    The maintenance schedule got triggered, and now all specific objects that I wanted, both manual and automatically were put into maintenance mode.

    The maintenance schedule ran out, and removed the objects that were configured within the maintenance schedule from maintenance mode.

    I then monitored closely the objects that were manually put into maintenance mode for about 20-30 minutes, and they were still in maintenance mode.

    Best regards,

  • If you, for instance, put several Windows Computers in maintenance via the scheduler and one of them was already put in maintenance manually, that one will get out of maintenance when the scheduler ends.

    Same deal for hosted objects that were put in maintenance manually.

  • I see what you mean, yes full computer objects will indeed be removed from maintenance mode (I believe this is by design really).

    I don't see a way of working around this now, but you can submit feedback about this over here:

  • Hi,

    Yes, as Leon said, currently, there is no way to prevent an object that is already in manual maintenance mode entering the automatic maintenance mode. We may fire up in the user voice and hope the product team can make this change in future.

    Thank you for your kind understanding.
