This topic describes how to enable and disable dSources for operations such as backup and restore.

For certain processes, such as backing up and restoring the source database, you may want to temporarily disable your dSource. Disabling a dSource turns off communication between the dSource and the source database, but does not tear down the configuration that enables communication and data updating to take place. When a disabled dSource is later enabled, it will resume communication and incremental data updates from the source database according to the original policies and data management configurations that you set.

Disabling a dSource is also a prerequisite for several other operations, like database migration and upgrading the dSource after upgrade of the associated data source.


  1. Click Manage.
  2. Select Databases.
  3. Click My Databases.
  4. Select the dSource you want to disable.
  5. On the back of the dSource card, move the slider control from Enabled to Disabled.
  6. Click Yes to acknowledge the warning.

When you are ready to enable the dSource again, move the slider control from Disabled to Enabled, and the dSource will continue to function as it did previously.
