Removing from Configuration

In this article

    The Remove from configuration operation is necessary, if you want to remove records about vApp replicas from the backup infrastructure and configuration database. After you remove vApp replicas, the replicated vApp remain on target hosts. If necessary, you can start them manually after you perform the Remove from configuration operation.

    Note

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