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