Prevent Management Servers to be put into Maintenance Mode

Make a bool setting on each Management Server object to check mark, that this MS cannot be accidentally put into Maintenenance Mode. This would avoid a lot of Problems for customers who put servers into Maintenance Mode.

    Hi Pascal Vedieu,

    In a distributed environment, putting a SCOM MS in MM, does failover its clients to other SCOM MS server.
    And when the SCOM MS comes out of MM, then its clients got returned back to it.

    This is current behavior in SCOM 2016 and later....

    Actually no, DO allow the Management Servers to be put in Maintenance Mode, but have it actually work the way it does for the other components (eg: actually stop MM when the timer comes down to 0).

    Even better, putting the MS in MM in a distributed environment should automatically failover the clients to other MS server

    Absolutely. The bulk of SCOM users in our environment are standard Operators. It is extremely difficult to repeatedly explain that although the tool allows them to put Management Servers in maintenance mode that they should not put Management Servers in maintenance mode. Doing so causes many problems in our environment.
