Resetting to Standalone Operation Mode

If Veeam Agent operates in the managed mode, you can manually reset it to the standalone mode from the Veeam Agent side. To learn more about operation modes, see the Standalone and Managed Operation Modes.

Before you reset Veeam Agent to the standalone mode, consider the following:

  • Veeam Agent computer added to the protection group of pre-installed Veeam Agents will be automatically removed from the protection group in Veeam Backup & Replication.
  • All backup jobs configured on Veeam Agent computer will be deleted. If you plan to protect this computer with a standalone Veeam Agent, you will need to create new backup jobs.
  • Veeam backup server settings including protection group configuration settings will be deleted.
  • Previously created backup files will remain in the target backup repository. If the target repository is managed by the Veeam backup server, in the Veeam Backup & Replication console, they will be marked as Orphaned. 

    To reset Veeam Agent to the standalone operating mode, run the following command:

    veeamconfig mode reset

    You can use the --force option to override additional input prompts and error messages:

    veeamconfig mode reset --force
