Turning the Repair Service off

About this task

Stopping the Repair Service cancels any pending repairs. When the Repair Service is turned back on again, a new cycle of repairs begins.

Turn off the Repair Service if you need to adjust the Time to completion parameter value. If for some reason you need to perform a manual repair operation, be sure to turn the Repair Service off.

Do not run a manual repair operation from Node administration or using the command line while the Repair Service or NodeSync Service is On.

While the Repair Service is off, the Repair service not enabled rule in the Best Practice Service continues to fail unless the rule has been turned off.

    Any repairs that were in progress when the Repair Service was stopped continue running until completion. Any pending repairs are cancelled. The Status for the Repair Service on the Services page displays Off.
