Preventing Job History for Disabled Activities

You can add the JMDontStartBkpsOnDisabledAgents additional setting to prevent job history from being created for disabled activities. Without this additional setting, job history is created for disabled activities even though the job does not run.

Example: The Enable Backup check box on the Activity Control tab is cleared at the client level. If the JMDontStartBkpsOnDisabledAgents additional setting is enabled, a "Failed to Start" job does not appear in the job history for the client after the backup job runs.
