Please help. Need to know how to unmanage alerts for a daily maintenance window.

Let me start off by saying that the ONLY training my coworkers and I have received is how to unmanage the alerts for one continuous block of time.  Our admin left the company abruptly and we inherited his SolarWinds duties.  That being said, we desparately need to know how to unmanage a node for a daily maintenance window (without going in and unmanaging it every single day).  I've been looking through the website, the help file, etc... and have not found anything useful.  I'm not sure what edition we're using or anything but this is what is written at the very bottom of the screen and I hope it's useful:    Solarwinds Orion Platform 2013.2.1, SAM 6.0.2, NPM 10.6.1, WPM 2.0.1, IVIM 1.9.0

Re: Please help. Need to know how to unmanage alerts for a daily maintenance window.

This should do the trick for you:

Scheduling unmanage task for nodes, interfaces and applications

Otherwise, you could restrict the nodes OUT of the normal alerts; and then create unique alerts for that specific node that ignore the daily maintenance window. Depending on the number of devices in question, this may be easiest-accomplished by adding a custom property to your nodes and then using that as your filter in alerting.

Let me know if that helps
