How can I take my backup server offline for maintenance, and prevent backups and other transactions from failing during the maintenance window?
Any OnApp with dedicated backup servers
You may use the daemon for background tasks:
- Go to Sysadmin Tools menu.
- Press Stop Daemon button. This will allow any currently running backups and tasks to complete but no new ones will start. At that stage you can proceed with your maintenance.
- Once completed, go back to the Sysadmin Tools menu and click Start Daemon button.
