Setting the MediaAgent on Maintenance Mode

Enable this option to disable the MediaAgent for backup, restore and auxiliary copy operations. If jobs are running and the MediaAgent is marked for maintenance mode, then any such job goes into a waiting state untill another applicable MediaAgent is available. However, even if the MediaAgent is marked in the maintenance mode, it will be available to perform other administrative tasks on the attached devices, such as Drive Cleaning, Unloading Drive, etc.


  1. From the navigation pane, click Storage > MediaAgents.
  2. On the MediaAgents page, click the MediaAgent for which you wish to configure the setting.
  3. Under Activity Control area, click the toggle key next to the Maintenance mode.
