Enabling or Disabling Backups and Restores

By default, all activities are enabled at all levels in the CommCell environment. An activity that is enabled at the CommCell level can be disabled at lower levels, for example, at the client level. An activity that is disabled at the CommCell level is disabled throughout the CommCell environment regardless of the settings on the individual entities. The CommCell level has the highest precedence while a subclient has the lowest precedence.

If you disable an activity, you can queue the jobs for that activity. For information about queuing jobs for disabled activities, see Queuing Jobs for Disabled Activities.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the entity, and then select Properties.

  2. On the Activity Control tab, select or clear check boxes to enable or disable activities.

  3. Click OK.
