Suspending schedules on hosts to place them in maintenance mode

When you want to prevent the host from running any SnapCenter scheduled jobs, you can place your host in maintenance mode. You must do this before you upgrade plug-ins. You might want to do this if you are performing maintenance tasks on hosts.


  1. In the left navigation pane, click Hosts.
  2. In the Hosts page, click Managed Hosts.
  3. In the Managed Hosts page, select the host you want to suspend.
  4. From the Information section, select the plug-in and click Suspend Schedule to place the host for this plug-in in maintenance mode.
    Note: You do not have to stop the plug-in service first; the plug-in service can be in a running or stopped state.
    After you suspend schedules on the host, the Managed Hosts page shows "Suspended" in the Overall status field for the host.

After you finish

After you complete host maintenance, bring the host out of maintenance mode by clicking Activate Schedule.
