Veeam ONE 9.5 Update 4
Working with Alarms

Maintenance Mode

Maintenance mode is an option used to suppress alarms for specific infrastructure objects during planned maintenance operations. After you switch an infrastructure object to the maintenance mode, Veeam ONE will suppress all alarms on this object.

You can enable the maintenance mode for single infrastructure objects or containers. When you enable the maintenance mode for a container, you can choose to propagate alarm suppression to its child objects. For example, if you want to perform maintenance on a host, you can enable the maintenance mode for the host itself and for all VMs on this host.

You can enable the maintenance mode manually or set a maintenance schedule.

Enabling Maintenance Mode Manually

You can enable the maintenance mode for an infrastructure object manually. After you switch an infrastructure object to the maintenance mode manually, Veeam ONE will stop triggering alarms for this object until you manually disable the maintenance mode.

To enable the maintenance mode for an infrastructure object manually:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Monitor.

For details, see Accessing Veeam ONE Monitor.

  1. At the bottom of the inventory pane, click the necessary view — Infrastructure View, Business View, vCloud Director View, or Data Protection View.
  2. In the inventory pane, right-click an infrastructure object and select Maintenance Mode from the shortcut menu.

If you select an object container, you can select the scope of objects for which you want to enable the maintenance mode:

  • If you select For this object, the maintenance mode will be enabled for the selected object only. Alarms on its child objects will not be suppressed.
  • If you select For this and all contained objects, the maintenance mode will be enabled for the container and its child objects.

After you enable the maintenance mode for an infrastructure object, Veeam ONE will change the infrastructure object icon, and will display the Maintenance mode label next to the object name in the inventory pane.

Scheduling Maintenance Mode

You can configure a maintenance schedule for infrastructure objects. When a schedule is set, the maintenance mode will be enabled and disabled automatically according to the schedule.

To configure a maintenance schedule:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Monitor.

For details, see Accessing Veeam ONE Monitor.

  1. At the bottom of the inventory pane, click the necessary view — Infrastructure View, Business View, vCloud Director View, or Data Protection View.
  2. In the inventory pane, right-click an infrastructure object and choose Schedule Maintenance Mode from the shortcut menu.
  3. In the Schedule Maintenance Mode window, configure the maintenance schedule.
  1. Click Add.
  2. In the Type field, specify how often the object must be placed into the maintenance mode (once, monthly, weekly, daily).
  3. In the Day/Date field, specify a day when the maintenance mode must be enabled.
  4. In the Start time and End time fields, specify the start and end time of the maintenance period.
  5. Select the Apply to child objects check box if you want to enable the maintenance mode on the object itself and its child objects.
  6. In the Comment field, provide additional information about the planned maintenance. You can enter up to 512 characters in this field.
  7. Select the Enabled check box to enable the maintenance schedule.
  8. Repeat steps a–g for each schedule entry you want to add.
  1. Click OK.

Scheduled Maintenance Mode

To disable a maintenance schedule:

  1. In the Schedule Maintenance window, clear the Enabled check box next to the necessary schedule entry.
  2. Click OK.

The disabled schedule will remain on the list, but it will not be applied to the object.

To delete a schedule:

  1. In the Schedule Maintenance window, select the check box next to the schedule entry you want to remove.
  2. Click Delete.
  3. Click OK.

Disabling Maintenance Mode

To exit a scheduled or manual maintenance mode:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Monitor.

For details, see Accessing Veeam ONE Monitor.

  1. In the inventory pane, right-click an object in the maintenance mode and select Exit Maintenance Mode.

After you exit the maintenance mode, Veeam ONE will resume triggering alarms.
