How to temporarily suspend backups for a host?

Currently Being Moderated
We are running production OSB backups for a site with approximately 50 filesystems,
consisting of full, incremental, quarterly archive, and on-demand archive backups.

Our installation consists of

o administration master - obtool version 10.4.0.2.0 (64-bit OEL 5.8)
o media servers - obtool version 10.4.0.2 (64-bit OEL 5.8)
o SL8500 library - managed by ACSLS 8.1 with admin server attach point

Problem:

We recently lost a ZFS storage appliance storage pool due to pool corruption.
All backed-up filesystems were restored to another host pending a rebuild of
the corrupted ZFSSA.

Currently all backups are fail because they cannot communicate with the down
host. We want to suspend all attempts to back up the corrupted host pending
the rebuild. We have tried taking the host out of service via 'chhost -O'
but the scheduler launches backups that hang indefinitely with a session
status of 'awaiting resource availability'.

Is there any way to suspend backups of a host temporarily without having to
remove it from all the schedules it's in? Seems there should be but I've
been unable to find this in the docs.

Appreciate any help.

Thanks,

-pc
