Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to put any of the extents of your scale-out backup repository into Maintenance mode. You can use this mode if you need to perform service actions, such as upgrading an extent or installing a patch on it. Putting an extent into maintenance mode is mandatory to evacuate backups, as described in Evacuating Backups from Extents.
To put an extent into maintenance mode:
- Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
- In the inventory pane, select the scale-out backup repository under Scale-out Repositories.
- In the working area, select the extent and click Maintenance Mode on the ribbon or right-click the extent and select Maintenance mode.
To exit maintenance mode, select the extent and click Maintenance Mode on the ribbon or right-click it and select Maintenance mode once again.
