Maintenance windows allow scheduled production state changes of a device or all devices in a system, group, or location. You might want to set up a maintenance window, for example, to change a device's production state while you perform configuration changes or reboot a device.
When the maintenance window starts, the production state of the device is set to the value of Start Production State (for example, Maintenance). When the maintenance window closes, the production state of the device reverts to the value of Stop Production State (the state the device was in prior to Maintenance).
Maintenance windows do not prevent notifications from being triggered on the device. If you want to define the notifications you receive during the maintenance window, you will need to set up an appropriate trigger for the device production state that you set during your maintenance window. For more information, see Working with Triggers.
