SCCM Maintenance Window – Servers


Maintenance Window – a maintenance windows defines times during which ConfigMgr can apply advertisements and software update deployments to devices associated with a collection.

I have two maintenance windows specifically for server devices. In this case I want to never deploy anything to server devices. While this will change down the road and we will need to re-think how this is done it meets our requirements for today. The maintenance window blocked times overlap and therefore no advertisements can run ever unless there is an override. Please note that an override can be set via an advertisement (“ignore maintenance windows”). This is not set by default and would need to be set by a SCCM Administrator.

The first maintenance window is on the “All Windows Server Systems” collection. This collection contains all devices that have a Windows Server OS regardless of having the SCCM client or not (discovery can determine the OS without the client). The window is set to the smallest possible period of time (5 minutes) and is set for the 1st day every 1 month from 1:00:00 AM to 1:05:00 AM.

The second maintenance window is on the “All Windows Server Systems with the Client Installed” and is set to the smallest possible period of time (5 minutes) and is set for the 15th day every 1 month from 1:00:00 AM to 1:05:00 AM.
