Click the Start Maintenance Mode link to put a cluster node in maintenance mode. A node in this mode is still connected to the cluster, but its monitoring results are discarded until you click the Stop Maintenance Mode link. You can use this functionality to explicitly exclude a node from monitoring if you know that the monitoring values will not be accurate, for example, because you reconfigure the failover server. During maintenance, a cluster node is displayed with a transparent color in the overview graphic.

icon-i-roundOn this page, you will not see if your remote probes are connected to failover nodes. Please connect to your failover nodes and check explicitly if remote probes are connected (for example, in the device tree of the PRTG web interface on a cluster node).
