The Apprenda Maintenance Mode (AMM) tool is a command-line interface for Platform Operators. The AMM works primarily against the Apprenda System Operations Center (SOC) application to facilitate a Platform Operator’s need to transition servers between states of involvement in the Platform to perform maintenance on the Platform infrastructure.
The AMM allows you to store multiple cloud URLs and access them by alias in the future in order to connect to an instance of the Apprenda Platform with your Platform Operator account credentials. Once connected to a particular Cloud, all servers on the cloud are available to move through state transitions depending on maintenance or capacity needs.
The following are required to use most AMM functionality:
Note: AMM can only be executed from a Windows server. Once connected to a cloud, you can affect the state of every server in the cloud you are connected to.
The following are examples of common workflows for the AMM. A full list of commands can be found in the Commands section of this document or by using the ReadHelp command in a command-line interface.
amm RegisterCloud -url http://apps.myprivatecloud.com -alias mycloud
Connect to a Platform instance:
If you belong to more than one Tenant on the Platform, be prepared to specify the alias under which you would like to connect by using the –DevTeamAlias shown below option
amm ConnectCloud -cloudalias mycloud -user firstname.lastname@example.org -password mypassword -DevTeamAlias tenantAlias
amm GetNodeState -Hostname myserver
The following command will set a server to a new state. Once the new state is updated, the Platform will begin to transition the server into the desired state. You should read and understand the different server states before updating any servers that are a part of your Apprenda environment, as changing server states can impact the available hosting resources on the Platform.
Note that this command can only place a server into the Online, Reserved, or Maintenance states, and a reason for the state transition must be provided at the time of the request.
amm SetNodeState -Hostname mysever -State Reserved -Maintenance -This server needs maintenance
amm [command] [command_options]
For command help, execute ‘amm /?’ to get general information or ‘amm [command] /?’ for information on a specific command.
ConnectCloud -CloudAlias <CloudAlias> -User <Username> -Password <Password>
DisconnectCloud [-y] (-y forces disconnect without prompt)
GetNodeState –Hostname <-Hostname> [-Help]
RegisterCloud -Url <ApprendaCloudUrl> -Alias <CloudAlias> [-Help]
SetNodeState –Hostname <-Hostname> -State <-State> -Reason <-Reason> [-Help]
Note: SetNodeState can only transition a server to Online, Reserved, or Maintenance.
Any output generated by the command will be returned in JSON format
AMM will not prompt for input of required parameters that were not provided
Write output to both the console window and the specified file
