Enabling maintenance mode#

Maintenance mode stops activity on the server so you can run important tasks that require the server to be idle.

When you enable maintenance mode, users can log in to the server as usual and perform some tasks. However, users cannot start component processes, application processes, or generic processes. Also, version import processes do not start. Any process requests fail and are labeled "Could Not Start". Processes which begun before enablement of maintenance mode run as usual. Users can still make changes to the server, such as changing properties, creating elements such as applications and resources, and editing processes.
