Activate and suspend snapshot schedule

You can temporarily suspend scheduled collection of snapshot images when you need to conserve storage space. This method is more efficient than deleting and later re-creating the snapshot schedule.

About this task

The state of the snapshot schedule stays suspended until you use the Activate option to resume scheduled snapshot activity.

Procedure

  1. Select Storage > Snapshots.
  2. If it is not already displayed, click the Schedules tab.

    The schedules are listed on the page.

  3. Select an active snapshot schedule that you want to suspend, and then click Activate / Suspend.

    The State column status changes to Suspended, and the snapshot schedule stops collection of all snapshot images.

  4. To resume collecting snapshot images, select the suspended snapshot schedule that you want to resume, and then click Activate / Suspend.

    The State column status changes to Active.
