SCOM 2012 Monitoring Windows Cluster servers

Last Modified: 2012-09-18
SCOM 2012 Monitoring has 2 maintenance modes : SCOM Agents and Server Up/Down.

I would like to know when putting Windows cluster (SQL or Exchange) nodes in maintenance mode, which type of the maintenance mode they should be on?
I am not sure whether when manually failing over resources from one node to another if this will generate alerts. if so this might require SCOM Agents  maintenance mode.
When rebooting, I believe this requires Server Up/Down maintenance mode.

Any comments on my statement above to see if I am understanding well the SCOM maintenance modes.
