Removing Scale-Out Backup Repositories

In this article

    You can remove the scale-out backup repository at any time. When you remove the scale-out backup repository, Veeam Backup & Replication unassigns the performance extent role from all the backup repositories configured into it, and they become individual backup repositories. Backup files are not removed from backup repositories — they remain on the disk.

    You cannot remove a scale-out backup repository at which at least one job is currently targeted. First, you need to target jobs to another backup repository in the backup infrastructure.

    To remove a scale-out backup repository:

    1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
    2. In the inventory pane, click Scale-out Repositories.
    3. In the working area, select the scale-out repository and click Remove Repository on the ribbon or right-click the backup repository and select Remove.
