[Xymon] TS - Maintenance Mode for a group of hosts?

$ man Xymon

       disable HOSTNAME.TESTNAME DURATION <additional text>
              Disables a specific test for DURATION minutes. This will cause the status of this test to be listed as "blue" on the Xymon  server,  and
              no alerts for this host/test will be generated. If DURATION is given as a number followed by s/m/h/d, it is interpreted as being in sec-
              onds/minutes/hours/days respectively.   To disable a test until it becomes OK, use "-1" as the DURATION.   To disable all  tests  for  a
              host, use an asterisk "*" for TESTNAME.

              Re-enables a test that had been disabled.

Shouldn't be hard to roll your own script from here or I can share a rather simple script we use.

Subject: [Xymon] TS - Maintenance Mode for a group of hosts?

I have a request to take an entire area of hosts and place setup a maintenance window starting at a certain time and for say 3 hours.
Is there a script that I can send it a list and have it place all of the devices in maintenance mode?

All corporate servers will require a window of 3 hours at 6pm tonight.
Also, is there any option on the HOST line that will not show up (like an actual comment not the COMMENT: entry) that can be used to select them from.
e.g.  the word 'CORP' in the options like that will normally be ignored by Xymon?

I am running Xymon 4.3.0-0.beta2.

Also, is there a way to show the COMMENT or DESCRIPTION on the line like it does in the non-green view under this release?
