Removing Servers

In this article

    If you do not plan to use some server anymore, you can remove it from the backup infrastructure.

    You cannot remove a server that has any dependencies. For example, you cannot remove a server that is referenced by a backup or replication job, performs the role of a backup proxy or backup repository. To remove such server, you will need to delete all referencing jobs and roles first.

    When you remove a server that is used as a target host or backup repository, backup files and replica files are not removed from disk. You can easily import these files later to Veeam Backup & Replication if needed. To remove a server from the backup infrastructure:

    1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select Managed servers.
    3. In the working area, select the server and click Remove Server on the ribbon or right-click the server and select Remove.
