A blackout had been setup on several nodes to reduce the load on the OMS.
Need to remove the blackout as the OMS server has been upgraded for improved performance.
After removing a couple of targets from the blackout the status of the blackout is 'Modify Pending'.

Steps followed:
1) Login to Grid control console, trying to Edit blackout returns this error message: "Modify not supported at this status" 

2) Checking the blackout status from the repository table MGMT_BLACKOUTS.

SQL> Select * from MGMT_BLACKOUTS where BLACKOUT_NAME like '<Blackout-Name>';

 For example :

Cannot stop the blackout, the error is: "The last set of edits to the blackout have not yet been committed "
