Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Removing Scale-Out Backup Repositories

You can remove the scale-out backup repository at any time. When you remove the scale-out backup repository, Veeam Backup & Replication unassigns the extent role from all underlying backup repositories, and they become backup repositories. Backup files are not removed from backup repositories — they remain on disk.

You cannot remove a scale-out backup repository at which at least one job is currently targeted. First, you need to target jobs to another backup repository in the backup infrastructure.

To remove a scale-out backup repository:

  1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
  2. In the inventory pane, click Scale-out Repositories.
  3. In the working area, select the scale-out repository and click Remove Repository on the ribbon or right-click the backup repository and select Remove.
