Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5

Removing from Configuration

If you want to remove records about replicas from the Veeam Backup & Replication console and configuration database, you can use the Remove from configuration operation.

Replicated VMs remain on target hosts. If necessary, you can start them manually after the Remove from configuration operation is performed.

Mind the following:

  • The Remove from configuration operation can be performed only for VM replicas in the Ready state. If the VM replica is in the Failover or Failback state, this option is disabled.
  • When you perform the Remove from configuration operation for a VM that is replicated as a standalone object, Veeam Backup & Replication removes this VM from the initial replication job. When you perform the Remove from configuration operation for a VM that is replicated as part of a VM container, Veeam Backup & Replication adds this VM to the list of exclusions in the initial replication job. For more information, see Step 5. Exclude Objects from Replication Job.

To remove records about VM replicas from the Veeam Backup & Replication console and configuration database:

  1. Open the Backup & Replication view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Replicas.
  3. In the working area, select the replica and click Remove from > Configuration on the ribbon. You can also right-click the replica and select Remove from configuration.
