Excluding Capacity Tier from Scale-Out Repositories

You can exclude a capacity extent from the scale-out backup repository scope, for example, if you no longer want to utilize any third party services to store your data.

Consider that after you exclude an object storage repository that is being used as a capacity extent and which stores offloaded backup data, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically puts the excluded object storage repository into maintenance mode. Once a repository is in maintenance mode, you will not be able to restore your data from it. To switch back to normal, you will have to add that repository as an extent of any other capacity tier and synchronize existing backup chains with your performance extents. After the synchronization is complete, the existing backups will become available as imported. For more information, see Synchronizing Capacity Tier Data.

To exclude a capacity extent from the scale-out backup repository scope, do the following:

  1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
  2. In the inventory pane, click Scale-out Repositories.
  3. In the working area, select a scale-out backup repository and click Edit Scale-out Repository on the ribbon, or right-click a scale-out backup repository and select Properties.
  4. Move to the Capacity tier step of the wizard.
  5. Clear the Extend scale-out backup repository capacity with object storage check box.

You will be asked to confirm the action in the dialog shown below, whereupon an object storage repository will be immediately put into maintenance mode.
