You might want to disable a protection agent that protects specific data sources when doing the following:

  • Performing maintenance tasks on the server

  • Debugging a problem that you want to eliminate the DPM agent as a potential cause

When you disable a protection agent, DPM displays a message that all protection and recovery jobs for the protected computer will fail until the agent is re-enabled.
