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.
