    Detailed Description

    This cmdlet removes the specified VMware backup proxy from Veeam Backup & Replication.

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

    Remove-VBRViProxy Note:

    You cannot remove a backup proxy that is explicitly selected in any backup, replication or VM copy job. To remove such a proxy, you need to delete all job references to it first.

    Run Disable-VBRViProxy to disable a VMware proxy.
