Maintenance Mode scheduling at a future time in SCOM Technical Preview 2

announcement_5951A951Currently, many of you have to wait until the maintenance window arrives to put machines/devices to maintenance mode or have to use custom created Orchestrator runbooks/tools to achieve triggering maintenance mode at a future time. You expressed in your feedback that you would like to see a feature to schedule maintenance at a future time out of box in SCOM. We heard you and are excited to share that we released a feature in SCOM Technical Preview 2 that will enable you to put your monitored entities to Maintenance at a future time. The feature will give you the ability to create recurring maintenance schedules with options to schedule daily/ weekly/ monthly. It will also give you the ability to view all maintenance mode schedules created using this feature in one screen and also give you the ability to schedule multiple jobs for the same entity. Please watch out for this feature in System Center Technical Preview 2. You can find the Evaluation VHDs here and documentation about the feature here.
