Remove-VBRViProxy -Proxy <CViProxy> [-WarningAction <ActionPreference>] [-WarningVariable <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]
This cmdlet removes the specified VMware backup proxy from the backup infrastructure.
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.
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.
Specifies the array of VMware proxies 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.
This cmdlet supports Microsoft PowerShell common parameters. For more information on common parameters, see the About CommonParameters section of Microsoft Docs.
