Switch Between Modes
Applies To: Windows MultiPoint Server 2011
MultiPoint Manager includes the following modes to help you perform different types of MultiPoint Server system management:
Normal mode: Typically, the MultiPoint Server system is in normal mode. While in normal mode, the MultiPoint Server stations behave as if each station is a separate computer that is running Windows, and multiple users can use the system at the same time. You and your users can share files and perform the work that you must do.
Maintenance mode: When the MultiPoint Server system is in maintenance mode, no stations are available for use by other computer users. Instead, all of the monitors are treated as displays of the computer system. For example, you can use maintenance mode to install or update antivirus software, which cannot be installed when the computer is running in normal mode.
To switch from normal mode to maintenance mode
While in normal mode, click the Home tab.
Under Selected Item Tasks, click Switch to maintenance mode. The computer restarts and all stations become unavailable.
