    Detailed Description

    This cmdlet allows you to remove the specified backup repository from Veeam Backup & Replication.

    When you remove a backup repository, Veeam Backup & Replication unassigns the repository role from the server, so it is no longer used as a backup destination. The actual server remains connected to Veeam Backup & Replication.
