General maintenance includes tasks such as disk and file maintenance, updating operating systems and applications, and protecting data by using antivirus software and performing regular backups.
For servers running Microsoft Exchange Server, there are also Exchange maintenance tasks that occur regularly, such as database defragmentation and index purging.
When you need to perform maintenance on a protected server and do not want protection jobs to continue for the duration of the maintenance, you can use the following procedure to disable the protection agent.
|If you disable a protection agent for a server that is a cluster node, you should disable the protection agent for every node of the cluster.|
