Found one thing that I find a little annoying about AD and Maintenance mode. If I put a specific AD server in Maintenance mode because I know there is a planned outage for its location it would be nice if other DC’s did not start generating SCOM Alerts for replication failures with it. Has anyone found a work around for that yet?
We have solved another AD-problem by grouping maintenance mode in script.
We put server01 in MM, we add a part of group policy on all machines in maintenance mode due to the fact that they gave an error when they tried to contact the domain controller that was down. You could add the object for replication monitoring to that script.
