Disconnected Mode

 

By default, each time the program is started it checks to see if there are new XML data files to download and use within the program. If the VMware vCenter Protect - Configuration Management console is on a machine that is not connected to the Internet, or if you simply don't want to automatically download new XML files, you must run in Disconnected Mode. When Disconnected Mode is enabled the program will not attempt to look for updated XML files but will instead simply use the files already located on the machine.
