Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for Microsoft Hyper-V

Removing from Configuration

If you want to remove records about backups from the Veeam Backup & Replication console and configuration database, you can use the Remove from configuration operation.

When you remove a backup from the configuration, backup files (VBK, VIB, VRB, VBM) remain on the backup repository. You can import the backup later and restore VM data from it.

When you remove an encrypted backup from configuration, Veeam Backup & Replication removes encryption keys from the configuration database. If you import such backup on the same backup server or another backup server, you will have to specify the password or unlock the backup with Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager. For more information, see Importing Encrypted Backups.

To remove a backup from the configuration:

  1. Open the Backup & Replication view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Backups or Replicas.
  3. In the working area, select the backup and click Remove from > Configuration on the ribbon. You can also right-click the backup and select Remove from configuration.
