Uninstalling Veeam Agents and Veeam Plug-ins

You can remove all Veeam Agents and Veeam Plug-ins installed on a specific protected computer as one operation. This may be useful if both Veeam Agent and Veeam Plug-in are installed on the computer and you do not want to uninstall them one by one.


To learn about Veeam Agents, see Veeam Agent Management Guide.

To uninstall Veeam Agents and Veeam Plug-ins:

  1. Open the Inventory view.
  2. In the inventory pane, expand the Physical Infrastructure node and select the necessary protection group.
  3. In the working area, select the necessary computer and click Uninstall Everything on the ribbon or right-click the computer and select Uninstall everything.
  4. In the displayed notification window, click Yes.

When you remove all Veeam Agents and Veeam Plug-ins from a protected computer using Uninstall Everything, Veeam Backup & Replication also removes Veeam product components. For example, the Veeam Installer Service and Veeam Transport Service.


Consider the following:

  • If automatic installation of Veeam Plug-in is enabled in the protection group settings, after you remove Veeam Plug-in from a selected computer, Veeam Backup & Replication will install Veeam Plug-in on this computer during the next rescan job session started by schedule.
  • Prerequisite components installed and used by Veeam Plug-in are not removed during the uninstall process. To remove the remaining components, use the built-in tools directly on this computer (for example, Microsoft Windows Control Panel on the Microsoft Windows computer).
