    What's the point of EBS maintenance mode

    Jimbo
      I am trying to work out the value of EBS maintenance mode as enabled via ADADMIN, in regards to keeping users informed that the system is down for maintenance

      Naturally I enanble maintenance mode in order to use adpatch or adadmin and when it is enabled, users trying to log in get a message pertaining to the system being down for maintenance.

      However when I apply an EBS patch, I typically use adstpall.sh to stop all the Apps Services - including the Conc Managers, the Forms Server and even the Apache Server.

      Therefore I do not see how users get any maintenance message at all when they try to login ( since the Apache server is down ) - surely they just get URL Not found !

      Can anyone share their understanding of how this works ?

      thanks,
      Jim
