Quiescing MOSS2007

So if you need to perform maintenance on a farm, you “quiesce” it. IMHO, something like “Take Farm Offline” would have been a better choice.

Why should you use the quiesce feature?

Simply put, to prevent data loss.

How do you quiesce the farm?

1. From Central Administration, Operations, select “Quiesce Farm.”

2. Enter the number of minutes in which you want the farm to be fully quiesced and click “Start Quiescing.”

3. The page will display the quiescing status. [From Microsoft] “Quiescing has three states: normal, quiescing, and quiesced. Normal is the active state in which the farm handles all requests that come into it. Quiescing is the state in which the farm only handles requests from existing sessions, and quiesced is the state in which the farm does not allow any new sessions to start.”

How do you “un-quiesce” (reset) a farm:

1. From Central Administration, Operations, select “Quiesce Farm.”

2. Click “Reset Farm.” Why couldn't they have come up with an obscure word for “reset?”
