When you add an instance to Data Management (DMS), you must set a control mode for the instance. You can also change the control mode of the instance in the DMS console as required. The control mode of an instance can be changed in the Edit instance dialog box or in the left-side navigation pane.

Prerequisites

You are a database administrator (DBA) or a DMS administrator.
