Disabling and Removing Policies

In this article

    AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to temporarily disable or permanently delete backup policies created by Veeam Backup for AWS. When you disable a backup policy, Veeam Backup for AWS also disables the schedule configured for the backup policy. This means that the backup policy will no longer start automatically. You can enable and start the disabled policy manually any time you need.

    Disabling Backup Policies

    You can disable a backup policy only if it has a schedule configured beforehand. For more information on configuring a backup policy schedule, see the Backup Schedule section in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide.

    To disable a backup policy:

    1. Open the Home view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select Jobs.
    3. In the working area, select the necessary backup policy and click Disable on the ribbon. Alternatively, right-click the necessary backup policy and select Disable.

    Tip

    To enable a disabled policy, select it and click Disable once again.
