With the release of V2 I began building a management pack to collect the event logs created by the Maintenance Mode Scheduler and display them in the console.   Recently SCOM guru Tao Yang e-mailed me about his MP that provided similar functionality with more features then I had imagined.

I am making this my official management pack for the SCOM 2012 Maintenance Mode Scheduler.

Full Blog post with download can be found on his site.   http://blog.tyang.org/2014/05/22/management-pack-scom-2012-maintenance-mode-scheduler/

Features Include:

  • Auto Cleanup of past maintenance mode jobs that were set to run once. 
  • State View to see state of SCOM Maintenance Mode Scheduler.  It also validates the account has local admin permissions and a valid password.



  • Event View for New Jobs and Jobs that were Auto cleaned up 
  • Task to Launch the Web Console.


  • Dashboard View using the new PowerShell widgets 
  • Report on New Jobs



If you are using the SCOM 2012 Maintenance Mode Scheduler.  I highly recommend you checking this out.

All credit goes to Tao Yang.  Thank you for creating such an awesome MP.
