Updating and Uninstalling I/O Filter

Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to update or uninstall the I/O filter from organization VDCs using the Veeam Backup & Replication console.


Consider the following:

  • Make sure that you have disabled or deleted all VMware Cloud Director CDP policies as described in section Disabling and Deleting Policies.
  • [When uninstalling the filter] If you have manually assigned the Veeam CDP Replication storage policy to VMs that are parts of organization VDCs to which the filter was installed, or replicas are still present in the Veeam Backup & Replication configuration database, you must change the storage policy for these VMs.

For more information on how to change storage policies, see VMware Docs. To see the list of replicas, open the Home view. In the inventory pane, click the Replicas node.
