Netbackup enhancement - Client in maintenance mode
Today when we face an issue with a server and we know that for a few days we won't be able to back it up, we remove it from the policy.
This might lead to forget to put it back.
Would it be possible to put the client in a policy in maintenance mode for X number of days. The behavior should be something like:
- First day to day X: the client will show in the activity monitor with a complete status(blue) but with a different (new) status code
- Day X+1 and after, the backup will resume automatically.
This will allow our reporting, SLAs and incident to be more accurate by not including a failed backup or missed backup. We also won't forget to put the client back in the schedule.
