Pausing storage devices

You can pause a storage device to prevent scheduled and new jobs from running on that device while maintenance activities are performed. Active jobs are not affected if they start before the device is paused.

The status Paused appears next to the device name in the Devices view if it is currently paused.

To pause storage devices

  1. On the navigation bar, click Devices.

  2. Click the storage device icon.

  3. Under General Tasks in the task pane, select the Pause check box.
