Maintenance mode for Servers

Is there a way for HPE OneView Version 3.10.07 to put a server into maintenance mode? Every time I take a server power off for maintenance, I get error messages.


Re: Maintenance mode for Servers

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to suppress these alerts.  We are looking at ways to improve this experience for our customers.  But I do not have anything to share in a public forum at this time.

Re: Maintenance mode for Servers

This is a very badly needed basic feature, it seems we have 2 choices:

  • constantly see alerts as server is under known maintenance
  • disable notifications completely when planning maintenance (error prone and could mean missing legit issues)

Please consider implementing ASAP.  Using release 4.00.07-0330056.

I would also suggest there should be a way to set maintenance mode in bulk.  For example, if we have well defined hostnames, we should be able to search Server Hardware section for hostname:*hadoop* or similar, select all matches and put in maintenance for specified time period.

has this feature already been added in the meanwhile? Just beginning with OneView and miss that maintenance mode as known from VMware etc.

I've been using OneView 1.20 and just upgraded to the latest version. I was so sure that this latest version would finally have this feature. I can't believe that it doesn't. Does HP not use OneView themselves in a Production environment and do maintenance on their machines? I'm doing firmware upgrades across our entire HP fleet (without Smart Update) and the amount of alerts flooding our inbox is debilitating.
