When using the page-level scope, introduced in Squared Up v2.2, health state and maintenance mode information is displayed for the SCOM object or group that the page represents. This means that you can put a group or Distributed Application (DA) into maintenance mode, for example, if you create a dashboard and scope it to a DA, the dashboard will show the health state of the DA in dashboard title and allow you to put the DA into maintenance mode directly from the dashboard.

View the group or distributed application in Squared Up by searching for it or drilling down from another dashboard. On the page menu, click the 'maintenance mode' button:

 Then the 'Enable maintenance mode' panel appears:


While a group is in maintenance mode you will see a button next to the group name saying 'in maintenance mode', and buttons allowing you to update the time period or disable maintenance mode:


You will receive the following message if you accidentally try to put all your SCOM servers into maintenance mode:

This action has been prevented. Enabling maintenance mode on this object would not leave any active Management Servers.
