I am running BSM 9.21 on Windows. Let me preface this by stating that the issues I'm having with downtime management, have been covered in previous messages:
1. Unable to edit a downtime once it goes active (cannot change CIs, schedules, actions, etc.)
2. Unable to delete an active downtime from the GUI (it has to be done from JMX console)
My interpretation from previous messages on this forum is that downtime management is WORKING AS INTENDED, but I don't understand WHY that is how it is supposed to work. Specifically, why can't I edit a downtime after it has entered an active state?

you cannot edit active DT since there are other engines in BSM relying on DT which will not be affected by that change (for example: Service Health, SLM, EUM reports, etc).
you cannot delete DT since it can still be used in BSM even after it ended, for example: in SLM recalculation or EUM Reports.

You can make use of the JMX console. Once deleted it will effect your SLM as the downtime details are lost.
