Deleting AWS Resources

In this article

    When you deploy a backup appliance from the Amazon Machine Image (AMI), Veeam Backup for AWS creates a number of resources while operating in AWS infrastructure, and these resources are not removed from the infrastructure automatically when you delete the backup appliance. To uninstall Veeam Backup for AWS, you must locate and delete the following resources from your AWS infrastructure:

    • AWS::IAM::InstanceProfile
    • AWS::DLM::LifecyclePolicy
    • AWS::CloudWatch::Alarm
    • AWS::EC2::SecurityGroup
    • AWS::IAM::Role
    • AWS::EC2::Instance

    To delete a resource, do the following:

    1. Log in to the AWS Management Console using credentials of an AWS account where the appliance is created.
    2. Use the region selector in the upper-right corner of the page to select the AWS Region in which the appliance resides.
    3. Navigate to AWS service to which the AWS resource belong.
    4. Select the AWS resource that you want to remove, and click Delete.
