MaintMode on a single class

Didnt know that this would work…

In a project that I’m working on the customer wanted me to create a Management Pack for a couple of services, the only problem was that they wanted to restart the services during the night.
My first solution was to create a group with the computer in it and run a PowerShell script to set the computer in to maintenance mode.

Then I tested to put my own class in that group and use the same script on the class instead.

Worked like a charm 🙂

The script: systemcenterforum.org/maintenance-mode-scheduled-task-for-ops-mgr-2007/

Inline tasks in SCOM

Since I can’t find any documentation on how to create inline tasks in knowledge I did a small reverse engineering on a SCOM MP.

Here is a summary of how to do it:

First you need to create a task that you can refer to. Take a note of your Task ID.


  
    Alert
    
      %SystemRoot%\System32\net.exe
      %SystemRoot%\System32
      START MyService
      20
      true
    
  

And when you have the Task ID of your task you can create an inline task (or a link to a view or a website)

		My WebLink
		
	

Tip: Use Authoring Console and a XML-editor.
