Putting a MediaAgent into Maintenance Mode
You can put a MediaAgent into maintenance mode so that it does not run backup, restore, or auxiliary copy operations.
When you put a MediaAgent into maintenance mode, if a job is running on the MediaAgent, the job goes into a waiting state until another MediaAgent runs it.
Even in maintenance mode, MediaAgents can perform administrative tasks, such as drive cleaning, on attached devices.
- From the navigation pane, go to Manage > Infrastructure.
The Infrastructure page appears.
- Click the MediaAgent tile.
The MediaAgents page appears.
- Click the MediaAgent that you want to put into maintenance mode.
- In the Activity Control section, move the Maintenance mode toggle key to the right.
