During a "component" maintenance, the RightScale Dashboard has a maintenance window when accessing the MultiCloud Marketplace or "Settings" menu.
The RightScale planned maintenance for "component" is typically between 60 and 90 minutes. Please see the estimated downtime for each incident provided in the maintenance window notification emails sent 7 days in advance. Also, notifications are displayed in the Dashboard prior to the event.
The main disruption of a component maintenance is the that the gateway and library are down which will interrupt communication with clouds and configuration of cloud-based resources.
NOTE: Look in the RightScale email notice for the date and time of the maintenance which varies depending on your environment. If you are unsure of which environment you are in, please contact email@example.com.
Any action that requires the cloud endpoint will fail, but anything related to configuring RightScale's assets will continue to work uninterrupted (as long as it doesn't require a change in existing resources in the cloud). Also, any cloud resource discovery will be on hold during the maintenance. Requests will queue up for your information during the maintenance window and subsequently timeout before the maintenance window goes away, resulting in failed requests.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact support via the Dashboard or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Support staff will be available and monitoring requests during and after planned maintenance windows in case there are any issues that might affect you.
