Why don't Corrective Actions run during a Notification Blackout? (Doc ID 2728640.1)

Although something one might desire, Enterprise Manager was not designed to allow running Corrective Actions (CA)s during a Notification Blackout.

The rationale is that during this notification blackout period, the system can be in a state of flux (e.g. patching and provisioning may be occurring, etc.,) and if there are alerts raised, then running CAs on these alerts could lead to undesirable side-effects.

For example, the CA for a 'target down' alert could be to bring the target up, so if the target was brought down for maintenance, and the event triggered, then the CA would try to bring the target back up and interfere with the maintenance activity.
