This custom task sequence action is used to close the connection to the PBA data store after user state is saved with USMT Capture User State.

Peer backup assistant Finalize Nomad PBA data store replaces the Peer backup assistant Close Nomad PBA data store and the Peer backup assistant High-availability task sequences, which are now deprecated. You can continue using the old task sequence actions if you have already deployed them but you cannot modify them. Going forward, we recommend you migrate to this new task sequence action.

ActionsWhen run, this task:
  1. Closes the connection to the PBA data store after the user state is saved with USMT Capture User State.
  2. Optionally, stores user state data locally if there is enough disk space.
ContextThis task sequence action:
  • Must be run after the Provision Nomad PBA Data Store and USMT Capture User State actions

  • Must be equal to or greater than the Synchronous value.
Maximum1The maximum number of PBA data store backups.
  • Must be between 1 and 6
Synchronous1The number successful backups to create before moving on to the next task sequence action.
