You can use the following procedures to disable or enable a System Center Operations Manager connector for System Center 2012 – Service Manager and validate the changes.

For example, after you configure an Operations Manager connector, if you must perform maintenance operations on the Service Manager database, you can temporarily disable the connector and suspend the data import. You can resume the data import by re-enabling the connector.
