    Note: To access Activity Control at any level below the CommServe, right-click the appropriate entity, select Properties and then click the Activity Control tab.

  2. Click the Activity Control tab.
  3. Clear the Enable All Job Activity check box and click OK.
  4. From the CommCell Browser, go to a client backup set.
  5. Right-click the backup_set, point to All Tasks and click Backup All Subclients.
  6. Select the options for the backup job and click OK.
