Disabling and Enabling Jobs

In this article

    You can disable and enable scheduled VM, computer and file jobs without accessing the Veeam Backup & Replication console on managed backup servers. For example, to prevent a backup job from writing data to a cloud repository, you can temporarily disable this job.

    Required Privileges

    To perform this task, a user must have one of the following roles assigned: Portal Administrator, Site Administrator, Portal Operator.

    Disabling Jobs

    A disabled job will not start by the schedule. If you disable a job that has a child job (such as a SQL log backup or Oracle log backup), both the parent and the child jobs will be disabled.

    To disable one or more scheduled jobs:

    1. Log in to Veeam Service Provider Console.
