Verify that you are logged in to the Log Insight Web user interface as an Admin user. The URL format is https://log-insight-host, where log-insight-host is the IP address or host name of the Log Insight virtual appliance.

If you use an external load balancer, take the node off the balancer before you put it in maintenance mode.
