Yes, that’s confusing for me, too. Every maintenance mode on is followed by a maintenance mode off in the log files. But in fact, the maintenance mode does not get disabled.
And yes, I still have problems, as the maintenance mode of yesterdays ncp_update is still on.
The reason why I’ve jumped ahead was, that getting help for this issue is really hard. So i hoped that the update probably would fix this. But today shows, that the issue still exists.
