Suspending and resuming operations on resource groups

You can temporarily disable scheduled operations from starting on a resource group. Later when you want, you can enable those operations.


  1. In the left Navigator pane of the VMware vSphere web client in vCenter for the Plug-in for VMware vSphere, click Resource Groups.
  2. On the Resource Groups page, on the Objects tab, select a resource group in the table and click (Suspend).
  3. In the Suspend resource group confirmation box, click Yes to confirm.

After you finish

On the Resource Groups page, the job status for the suspended resource is Under_Maintenance. You might need to scroll to the right of the table to see the Job Status column.

To resume backup operations, select the resource group, and then click (Resume). After backup operations are resumed, the Job Status changes to Production.
