Removing Storage Systems

You can remove a storage system from the backup infrastructure, for example, if you do not want to perform Backup from Storage Snapshots or use Veeam Explorer from Storage Snapshots anymore.

Mind the following:

  • When you remove a storage system from the backup infrastructure, Veeam Backup & Replication attempts to find hosts with names starting with the 'VeeamAUX' prefix and remove such objects from the storage hierarchy. Veeam Backup & Replication assumes that such hosts are created by Veeam Backup & Replication itself and are used for service purposes.
  • You cannot remove a storage system from the backup infrastructure if you have a snapshot job configured for this storage system. You must delete the snapshot job first.

To remove a storage system:

  1. Open the Storage Infrastructure view.
  2. In the inventory pane or in the working area, right-click the storage system and select Remove storage.
