Manually starts server maintenance. This command can be useful if an earlier maintenance attempt failed, and the underlying cause of maintenance failure has been resolved. The server is in an UNDER_MAINTENANCE state while maintenance is in progress.

Maintenance can only be started on servers in HEALTHY and UNHEALTHY states. Otherwise, an InvalidStateException is thrown. A ResourceNotFoundException is thrown when the server does not exist. A ValidationException is raised when parameters of the request are not valid.


For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to StartMaintenanceAsync.
