Remove-VBRServer [-Server] <CHost> [-WarningAction <ActionPreference>] [-WarningVariable <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]
This cmdlet removes a selected host from Veeam Backup & Replication.
When you remove a host, you only stop managing it via your Veeam Backup & Replication console. The host is not deleted as well as data stored on it, i.e. the backup files. You can import these backup files later to the Veeam Backup & Replication console by running Import-VBRBackup.
Note that when you remove servers from Veeam Backup & Replication, the backups of the removed hosts stay in the Veeam Backup & Replication database and repository.
A server that has any dependencies cannot be deleted. For example, you cannot delete a server that is referenced by a backup or replication job, or that performs the role of a backup proxy or repository. To remove such a server, you will need to delete all referencing jobs or roles first.
Specifies the array of servers you want to remove.
Specifies whether the cmdlet writes a message that describes the effects of running the cmdlet without actually performing any action.
Specifies whether the cmdlet displays a prompt that asks if the user is sure that they want to continue.
