User Guide for VMware vSphere

Removing Servers

If you do not plan to use some server anymore, you can remove it from the backup infrastructure.

You cannot remove a server that has any dependencies. For example, you cannot remove a server that is referenced by a backup or replication job, performs the role of a backup proxy or backup repository. To remove such server, you will need to delete all referencing jobs and roles first.

When you remove a server that is used as a target host or backup repository, backup files and replica files are not removed from disk. You can easily import these files later to Veeam Backup & Replication if needed.

Removing Servers Note:

When you remove VMware vCloud Director from the backup infrastructure, VMware vCenter Servers added to vCloud Director are not removed. To remove the VMware vCenter Server, in the inventory pane expand the vCenter Servers node, right-click the VMware vCenter Server and select Remove.

You cannot remove VMware vCenter Servers added to VMware vCloud Director until the VMware vCloud Director server is removed from the backup infrastructure.

To remove a server from the backup infrastructure:

  1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Managed servers.
  3. In the working area, select the server and click Remove Server on the ribbon or right-click the server and select Remove.
