Does "scheduled outages" ignore the remote poller?

vg-de-dortmund is a node, which is monitored by the remote poller.

I configured a scheduled outage for the node vg-de-dortmund to suppress all notifications. This is the event which occurs if the node is down:


Event 463576

Severity Minor Node vg-de-dortmund  
Time 16.09.14 03:01:00 Interface  
Service ICMP Location Monitor ID 16457  
UEI uei.opennms.org/remote/nodes/nodeLostService

A ICMP outage was identified on interface from remote poller 16457 from location: Fulda-DMZ3.

Unfortunately I receive a ONMS notification. No mail was send in this case:

Is this behaviour correct?

No it does not. You can include notifications to the scheduled outage if you want to
