I would like to discuss the following situation:
I want to disable backup activity on the client, however I want to keep aging of associate data as usual. Is there any workaround for it? It is possible to release lincence and deconfigure client, then data aging goes well... However, my question is:
It is possible to keep data aging on the client that is only disabled from the backup activity?
Thanks for your responses!

There are 2 options that you have here for this;
Open Commvault Control Panel - Media Management - Data aging tab
Ignore Cycle Retention on Backup Activity disabled subclients
Ignore Cycle Retention on de-configured clients
If you only want to disable the backup activity do it at the subclient level and set this option to a 1 and we will age the data based upon the days portion of the retention settings.
or you can completely deconfigure that client and set the other option.
Please be aware that these are global options and will affect all clients and subclients in the Commcell.
