Hierarchy Level


Set maintenance mode for a network element so that you can carry out maintenance tasks such as deleting or modifying the element, for example, an address pool.

When in the maintenance mode active phase, you can modify all the valid attributes on the network element. In other cases, you can modify only the non-maintenance mode attributes.

The following network elements must be in maintenance mode before you can modify or delete them:

  • Address pools

  • AMS interfaces

  • PCEF profiles

  • Session PICs

  • Service PICs

  • Static time-of-day settings

  • TDF interfaces

  • TDF gateways
