Removing Storage Systems

In this article

    You can remove a storage system from the backup infrastructure.

    Mind the following:

    • When you remove a storage system from the backup infrastructure, Veeam Backup & Replication attempts to find hosts with names starting with the 'VeeamAUX' prefix and remove such objects from the storage hierarchy. Veeam Backup & Replication assumes that such hosts are created by Veeam Backup & Replication itself and are used for service purposes.
    • [For VMware integration]: You cannot remove a storage system from the backup infrastructure if you have a snapshot job configured for this storage system. You must delete the snapshot job first.

    To remove a storage system:

    1. Open the Storage Infrastructure view.
    2. In the inventory pane or in the working area, right-click the storage system and select Remove storage.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:


    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
