Switching to Maintenance Mode

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

Consider the following:

  • An object storage repository can only be put into maintenance mode until it is a member of a scale-out backup repository.

If an object storage repository was not added as part of any of your scale-out backup repositories, then the Maintenance mode option will not be available.

  • If an object storage repository that is being used and which stores offloaded backup data was, at some point, excluded from capacity tier, then such a repository will be put into maintenance mode automatically.

For more information on how to exit the maintenance mode for such excluded repositories, see Excluding Capacity Tier from Scale-Out Repositories.

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

  1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Backup Repositories.
  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 switch back to normal, repeat steps 1 and 2, and at the step 3, deselect the Maintenance mode check box.
