What is the best practice for adding a downtime page for SDM 14.1?

 

We are going to be upgrading Service Catalog soon, which requires us to quiesce Service Desk.  We would a downtime page to tell users the system is down, ETA for service restoration etc.

 

SDM:

14.1, Adv Availability

F5 load balancer for user traffic on application servers

IIS 8 running on port 80

10+ application servers

 

I was thinking of using the IIS URL rewrite module to redirect to a maintenance page, but wanted to see what the user groups think.  I would prefer to automate turning on/off the maint page which can be troublesome with the URL rewriter.

 

Thanks,

 

John
