I have an activity on my media server.Some RAM upgrade activity on the media server .Time is for 6 hrs.
What can be done so that my backup will not be impacted.
Shall I deactivate the media server or make it offline frm master server --> client attributes.
I have a disk pool and every disk pool has this master server selected along with 2 more.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Deactivate the media server. Move any policies that use this media servers storage unit to another media server until the RAM upgrade has been done. The upgrade should not take too long to do.
How to deactivate media server: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO33878
I would simply deactivate the media server.
Whether backups will be impacted depends on how Storage Units are configured and selection of STU in policies. (You don't specify disk pools in policies, only STU or STUG.)
If you have a STU defined for each media server and specific STU name is used in policy or SLP, your backups will be affected.
If you are using STU groups and STUG is specified in policies/SLPs, your backups will not be affected.
Please check STU config (bpstulist -g -U) and policy and/or SLP config.
every disk pool has this master server selected along with 2 more.
I guess you are referring to media servers and not master?

Thanks Marianne and revaroo.
But we have been told to offline that media server from the onsite team.
What if I offline that media server?
Follow the below solutions
1- Offline media server.
2- Deactivate the policy or change the policy activation (go into effect of) date (if not configured Storage group).
3- Move the storage unit to another media server.
