Manual Configuration of SCOM 2012 Maintenance Mode Scheduler

 

In some environments it’s difficult to predict the state of the Default Website and IIS where SCOM 2012 Maintenance Mode Scheduler gets installed.  There might be a group policy or a standard process that your IIS team uses to configure IIS.  In these environments the Maintenance Mode 2012 Config tool might throw an error.  We will need to do a Manual Install in these environments.

 

 

Manual Install Process

 

Run the SCOM 2012 MSI and do a standard install.

 

Instead of using the  image Maintenance Mode 2012 Config tool.

 

Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.  This tool is located under Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools
