5 0 0:Disabling and Enabling Task Group

From SEPsesam

This is documentation for SEP sesam version 5.0.0 Jaglion.
This is not the latest version of SEP sesam documentation and, as such, does not provide information on features introduced in the latest release. For more information on SEP sesam releases, see SEP sesam Release Versions. For the latest documentation, check SEP sesam documentation.


Up to SEP sesam version 4.4.3 Grolar, it was only possible to deactivate a schedule. If you deselect the Execution option in a schedule, all events that are linked to this schedule will be deactivated. However, you may want to disable only a particular task group without deleting it permanently and without cancelling all other events related to the same schedule. The option Execution off in the task group properties allows you to temporary disable a task group (and enable it again if required). You can also disable a task group during its creation.

Execution of a task group is enabled by default. You can disable a task group from running for a certain period of time by using Execution off option. When a task group is disabled, the tasks belonging to the group will not run on schedule nor can the group be run on demand by using the Immediate Start button. A disabled task group remains listed in the task groups list, but its icon is marked with a red cross. You can enable a disabled task group again at any time by deselecting the Execution off option (see step 2).

You can also disable a single backup task from running in the backup task properties. For details, see Disabling and Enabling Backup Task.


  1. From Main Selection -> Tasks -> By Groups, double-click the task group you want to disable. The task group properties window opens.
  2. Click the check box Execution off to disable execution of the task group. A dialog box will come up warning you that if you deactivate the task group it will not be executed at its appointed times in the schedule(s). Click OK to confirm deactivation of your task group.

A disabled task group keeps all its properties: it remains in the task groups list and is still assigned to the same schedule(s). It still appears by its name, but its icon is marked with a red cross.
