Switching to Maintenance Mode
Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to put an object storage repository into Maintenance mode. You can use this mode if you need to perform service actions with an object storage.
An object storage in the maintenance mode operates with the limited functionality, as described in Maintenance Mode Limitations.
An object storage 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 into the maintenance mode, do the following:
- Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
- In the inventory pane, select the Backup Repositories node.
- In the working area, select an object storage and click Maintenance mode on the ribbon or right-click an object storage and select Maintenance mode.
To remove the object storage repository 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.
The following table lists limitations that are imposed right after an object storage repository is put into the maintenance mode.
