Hi Aatefsoliman,

Distributed applications tend to do this fairly often and the only way to resolve the initial problem is to place the DA into maintenance mode for 5 minutes. The following article mentions placing the child nodes into MM, though this can be achieved by placing the whole DA into MM with all contained objects selected:


When you edit a DA, you are essentially asking it to recalculate it’s health state along with the objects contained within. The same premise applies as above.

Whilst this shouldn’t be the case all the time, it’s certainly happened to almost every SCOM admin out there.

I hope this helps :slight_smile:
