12.2. Enabling Global Maintenance Mode

You must place the self-hosted engine environment in global maintenance mode before performing any setup or upgrade tasks on the Manager virtual machine.


  1. Log in to one of the self-hosted engine nodes and enable global maintenance mode:

    # hosted-engine --set-maintenance --mode=global
  2. Confirm that the environment is in maintenance mode before proceeding:

    # hosted-engine --vm-status

    You should see a message indicating that the cluster is in maintenance mode.
