I have 4 Hyper-V host machines and I am trying to specify one as a "Maintance Host" but I see nothing in the VMM UI that let's me do that - am I missing something?  I've unchecked the check box "This host is available for placement" but there is no other checkbox in the UI that seems to let me specify it as a Maintance Host.

no nothing like that in VMM like you can in Vmware virtual center. Basically if you want to do maint you need to move the resources off of it and do your maint.

OK, thanks. Was pulling my hair out as the documentation mentions "Maintenance Host" quite often but mentions nothing about how to specify one - how do that slip through?
