Switching to Maintenance Mode

In this article

    Maintenance mode imposes limitations on usage of object storage repositories, as described in Maintenance Mode Limitations.

    An object storage repository can be put into both the maintenance and the seal modes at the same time. When both modes are applied, limitations of maintenance mode override limitations of seal mode.

    To put an object storage repository into the maintenance mode, do the following:

    1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select the Backup Repositories node.
    3. In the working area, select an object storage repository and click Maintenance mode on the ribbon or right-click an object storage repository and select Maintenance mode.

    To remove the extent from the maintenance mode, select the extent and click Maintenance Mode on the ribbon or right-click the extent and select Maintenance mode once again.
