Maintenance Window Reboot Process
Consider 2 scenarios:
A group of servers host an application that requires services to be stopped and disabled before a reboot is initiated, then once all servers are online and responding, the services should be set to automatic and started again.
A group of servers related to a common application require an ordered reboot sequence. i.e. Update and reboot in this order: Server 1, Server 2, Server 3, Server 4. Simultaneous reboots are not supported, not recommended or cause issues with the application.
What I propose is an addition to the “Maintenance Windows” tab of a device collection that would allow you to create a new maintenance process and deploy it to the collection. Perhaps linking a configuration item.
The ability to run a Powershell script against the systems or toggle services and WMI manageable objects would be of great assistance.
