AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to permanently remove Veeam Backup for AWS appliances from the backup infrastructure.
After you remove a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, the following limitations will apply:
Also, the restore process will start taking more time to complete causing data transfer costs to increase as Veeam Backup & Replication will not be able to use native AWS capabilities and will have to process more data.
To remove a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, do the following:
- In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, open the Backup Infrastructure view.
- Navigate to Managed Servers.
- Select the necessary Veeam Backup for AWS appliance and click Remove Appliance on the ribbon.
Alternatively, you can right-click the appliance and select Remove.
- In the Veeam Backup & Replication window, click Yes to acknowledge the operation.
If you want to remove an appliance from both the backup infrastructure and AWS, select the Delete cloud resources associated with the backup appliance? check box in the opened window. Veeam Backup for AWS will remove all resources associated with this appliance in AWS.
However, if an appliance has been deployed from the AWS Marketplace or is running Veeam Backup for AWS version 3.x (or earlier), to remove resources from AWS, you must follow the instructions provided in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide, section Uninstalling Veeam Backup for AWS.
