In the meantime what can you ? Well there is lots of information on various forums about using a Powershell scrip to schedule a maintenance window but one of the best tools that I have come across which should be in your OpsMgr kit bag is the Remote Maintenance Mode Scheduler. Version 2 has just been released and can be downloaded from http://www.scom2k7.com/scom-remote-maintenance-mode-scheduler-20/. This really is a great tool by Tim McFadden - great work.
The Remote Maintenance Mode Scheduler is a GUI based tool that lets administrators easily schedule maintenance mode for a server or group of servers inside System Center Operations Manager 2007.
New Features in version 2.0 include:
- Ability to schedule a daily maintenance mode.
- New Show Scheduled Tasks Dialog.
- Added feature to see all details for scheduled jobs.
- Added feature to delete scheduled jobs
