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.
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.
